I'm aware this is in progress, and will replace the code I'm commenting
on below.  Just to make sure that similar issues don't exist in nvptx-as,

I'm not sure if silently ignoring "strange" tokens is a good strategy?

If -freorder-blocks-and-partition is active, this results in PTX code
such as:

            .version        3.1
            .target sm_30
            .address_size 64
    // BEGIN FUNCTION DECL: vec_mult$_omp_fn$1
    .entry vec_mult$_omp_fn$1(.param.u64 %in_ar1);
    // BEGIN FUNCTION DEF: vec_mult$_omp_fn$1
    .entry vec_mult$_omp_fn$1(.param.u64 %in_ar1)
            .reg.u64 %ar1;

Note the global cold/hot labels.  This confuses mkoffload, and it runs
into a busy loop due to what I understand to be a bug in skipping of
"strange" tokens, cited above, which such global labels would fall under.
Here is what might be a fix for this (but I didn't analyze the parsing
code in detail); OK for trunk?
