Re: [patch,avr] make progmem work on AVR_TINY, use TARGET_ADDR_SPACE_DIAGNOSE_USAGE

> It boils down to adding 0x4000 to all symbols with progmem:  Flash memory

> can be read by means of LD instruction if we add offsets of 0x4000.  There

> spaces as there is nothing like a LPM instruction.
> This is simply achieved by setting a respective symbol_ref_flag, and when
> such a symbol has to be printed, then plus_constant with 0x4000 is used.
> Diagnosing of unsupported address spaces is now performed by
> TARGET_ADDR_SPACE_DIAGNOSE_USAGE which has exact location information.
> Hence there is no need to scan all decls for invalid address spaces.
> For AVR_TINY, alls address spaces have been disabled.  They are of no use.
