[Ada] Detailed exception messages for aliased parameters

This patch adds code to generate two different runtime checks for aliased
parameters depending on whether switch -gnateE is in effect. The default check
raises a normal Program_Error. The detailed version points out the troublesome
formals involved.

-- Source --

--  parameter_aliasing.adb

with Ada.Text_IO; use Ada.Text_IO;

procedure Parameter_Aliasing is
   type Rec is record
      Data : Integer;
   end record;

   procedure Test (Formal_1 : Rec; Formal_2 : in out Rec) is
      Formal_2.Data := Formal_1.Data + 1;
   end Test;

   Actual : Rec := (Data => 1);

   Test (Actual, Actual);
   Put_Line ("ERROR: aliasing not detected");

end Parameter_Aliasing;

-- Compilation and output --

$ gnatmake -f -q -gnata -gnateA parameter_aliasing.adb
$ ./parameter_aliasing
$ gnatmake -f -q -gnata -gnateA -gnateE parameter_aliasing.adb
$ ./parameter_aliasing

raised PROGRAM_ERROR : parameter_aliasing.adb:16 aliased parameters

raised PROGRAM_ERROR : parameter_aliasing.adb:16 aliased parameters, actuals
  for "formal_1" and "formal_2" overlap
