[RFC] Modify -g1 to produce line tables

A long time ago, I proposed a -gmlt option to generate "minimal line
tables" (basically -g1 + line tables):

The consensus from that thread was that instead of a new option, we
should just modify -g1 to produce line tables (the documented purpose
of -g1 is to enable stack traces, and stack traces are much more
useful with line numbers). I also proposed, and got no objection, that
-g by itself should set the debugging level to 2 (i.e., -g1 -g should
behave the same as -g1 -g2).

Here, finally, is that patch again, reworked to generate line tables
at -g1. I plan to commit this when Stage 1 reopens, but I'd like to
verify that earlier consensus. I also plan to commit this to the
google/main branch, and future merges will go more smoothly if what I
put in google/main matches what eventually goes into trunk.
