Re: [patch] fix wrong gimple code with ptr to forward vla

Back after some delay introduced by various events, attached is a
first attempt which passes testing on x86-linux with languages=all,ada.

As discussed, the idea here is not to recurse into pointed-to types from
gimplify_type_sizes any more, and have the C front-end attach an artificial
pointed-to type declaration node when necessary instead.

A key aspect is the call to finish_decl, which builds the DECL_EXPR node
required to push the gimplifier into gimplify_type_sizes.

First dive into the C front-end, so I might very well have overlooked
a number of rules or issues. Suggestions for rework or improvements
welcome :-)

Thanks in advance,

        * gimplify.c (gimplify_type_sizes) [POINTER_TYPE, REFERENCE_TYPE]:
        Don't recurse on the pointed-to type.
        * c-decl.c (grokdeclarator) [cdk_pointer]: If the pointed-to type
        is anonymous and involves components of variable size, build an
        artificial TYPE_DECL for it to force the size evaluation at the
        pointer declaration point.

        * gnat.dg/forward_vla.adb: New case.
