[PATCH] better error message for multiple prevailing defs

I have some trouble with the linker providing multiple prevailing
definitions for a single LTO symbol. Right now it's difficult 
to find out which symbol this even is, can be only done with the 
debugger. Fix the error message to print out the symbol.

I have no svn account, so someone would need to commit it for me.

	* lto-symtab.c (lto_symtab_merge_decls_1): Use internal_error
    	instead of gcc_assert to print better error message for multiple
    	prevailing defs.
