[Ada] Fix aliasing bug with fat pointer types

We have a complex machinery in gigi to handle forward declarations of fat 
pointer types, i.e. pointers to unconstrained arrays.  They aren't pointers 
per se, only records containing a pair of pointers, but we try to emulate the 
behavior of pointers as much as possible for them.

There is a bug when the old and new versions of such pointers are merged in 
update_pointer_to: we fail to merge the alias set.

Fixed thusly, tested on x86-64-suse-linux, applied on the mainline.

	* gcc-interfaces/utils.c (update_pointer_to): In the unconstrained
	array case, merge the alias set of the old pointer type.
