Option overriding in the offloading code path (was: [nvptx] -freorder-blocks-and-partition, -freorder-functions)

Am I on the right track with my assumption that it is correct that
nvptx.c:nvptx_option_override is not invoked in the offloading code path,
so we'd need a new target hook (?) to consolidate/override the options in
this scenario?

Using this to forcefully disable -fvar-tracking (as done in
nvptx_option_override), should then allow me to drop the following
beautiful specimen of a patch (which I didn't commit anywhere, so far):

    libgomp Fortran testing: for -g torture testing, disable variable tracking.
    Otherwise, the nvptx-none offloading compiler will run into issues such as:
