Symbol table 1/many: symtab_nodes

this is very basis of the symbol table work.  The basic idea is:

1) give cgraph node and varpool node common base (symtab node)
2) Move common data there: that is type, declaration, visibility flags,
   force_output, ipa references and other stuff.
3) Introduce symtab.c for basic symbol table manipulation that in first run
   is represented as simple linked list of cgraph/varpool node entries.
4) Update ipa-reference API for the new class structure
5) Significantly clanup/rework old cgraph reachability and construction code
   that has grown up very convoluted to meet non-unit-at-a-time needs.
   Merge most of logic done on varpool and cgraph into common grounds
6) reorg WHOPR partitioning code
7) Add new types of symbol table entries - labels, aliases and possibly
   constant pools and symbols defined by asm statements so existing WHOPR bugs
   have chance to be solved.
8) Add actual symbol name hash - this is trickier than it sounds given that
   GCC currently don't really know the symbol names on non-LTO targets.
   I plan to simply take the existing lto-symtab logic and slowly require
   targtets to provide hook to translate ASSEMBLER_NAME into symbol name.
   It would be nice to get rid of ASSEMBLER_NAME and replace it by SYMBOL_NAME
   + set of flags, but this is very hard to do since assembler name goes
   everywhere into target machinery.  I am not really volunteering to do that
   at this moment.
9) Reorg most of lto-symtab to work on symtab keeping the prevailing and
   other stuff there.

I would like to get most of the changes into mainline for this stage1.  In worst
case at least 1-6.

I prototytped all except for lto-symtab reorg, but I would like to re-do
everything incrementally for mainline with cleanups on the way.  Many
of things can be significantly simplified over current implementation
and I hope it will make it easier to follow the changes and get me some useful
feedback.  It is kind of second chance for cleaner cgraph API and it would
be nice to get it mostly right.

This patch takes the very first step by adding the base object.  It implements
inheritance in C via cgraph/varpool accessors. C++ would make sense here, but I
think I still can't because of gengtype.  Once C++ is not only allowed, but
also useful, I don't think changing the syntactical shugar to actual classes
would be a significant project.


	* cgraph.h: Remove misledaing comment on ipa-ref.h.
	(symtab_type): New enum.
	(symtab_node): New structure.
	(cgraph_node, varpool_node): Add symbol base type.
	(cgraph, varpool): New accestor functions.
	* cgraph.c (cgraph_create_node_1): Set symbol type.
	* varpool.c (varpool_node): Set symbol type.
