[PATCH][RFC] Poison bitmap_head->obstack

This tries to make bugs like that in PR88317 harder to create by
introducing a bitmap_release function that can be used as
pendant to bitmap_initialize for non-allocated bitmap heads.
The function makes sure to poison the bitmaps obstack member
so the obstack the bitmap was initialized with can be safely

The patch also adds a default constructor to bitmap_head
doing the same, but for C++ reason initializes to a
all-zero bitmap_obstack rather than 0xdeadbeef because
the latter isn't possible in constexpr context (it is
by using unions but then things start to look even more ugly).

The stage1 compiler might end up with a few extra runtime
initializers but constexpr makes sure they'll vanish for
later stages.

I had to paper over that you-may-not-use-memset-to-zero classes
with non-trivial constructors warning in two places and I
had to teach gengtype about CONSTEXPR (probably did so in
an awkward way - suggestions and pointers into gengtype

Bootstrapped (with host GCC 4.8) on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu,
testing in progress.

The LRA issue seems to be rare enough (on x86_64...) that
I didn't trip over it sofar.

Comments?  Do we want this?  Not sure how we can easily
discover all bitmap_clear () users that should really
use bitmap_release (suggestion for a better name appreciated
as well - I thought about bitmap_uninitialize)

	* bitmap.c (bitmap_head::crashme): Define.
	* bitmap.h (bitmap_head): Add constexpr default constructor
	poisoning the obstack member.
	(bitmap_head::crashme): Declare.
	(bitmap_release): New function clearing a bitmap and poisoning
	the obstack member.
	* gengtype.c (main): Make it recognize CONSTEXPR.

	* lra-constraints.c (lra_inheritance): Use bitmap_release
	instead of bitmap_clear.

	* ira.c (ira): Work around warning.
	* regrename.c (create_new_chain): Likewise.
