[PATCH], Patch #6, revision 3, Create pc-relative addressing insns

This is a re-think of patch #6.

I have changed the TARGET_TOC to be TARGET_HAS_TOC in the aix, darwin, system
V, and Linux 64-bit headers.  Then in rs6000.h, TARGET_TOC is defined in terms
of TARGET_HAS_TOC and not pc-relative referencing.

I discovered that TARGET_NO_TOC must not be set to be just !TARGET_TOC, since
TARGET_NO_TOC is used to create the elf_high, elf_low insns in 32-bit.

I added a gcc_assert in create_TOC_reference.

For pc-relative, I dropped setting an alias set, since it uses the constant
pool SYMBOL_REF created by force_const_mem (the TOC code needs to create the
alias set because it rewrites the memory address, and the constant pool stuff
is missing).  Note, there is some more code that will need to be done when
pc-relative support is completely supported, and that will be in a later patch.

I did rename the static variable 'set' that contained the alias set to
TOC_alias_set.  I did not move the initialization of the TOC_alias_set
elsewhere, because in order to call TOC_alias_set, the code has already called
force_const_mem, create_TOC_reference, and gen_const_mem, so I didn't see the
point of adding a micro-optimization for this.

For that future pc-relative change, I did add code to only allow pc-relative if
the memory model is medium.  This eliminates some of the checks you objected to
in the previous patch.

I did build the compiler on both big endian and little endian power8 system,
and ran the regression tests (both 64/32-bit on the big endian system, and just
64-bit on the little endian system) and there were no regressions.

In addition, I built spec 2017 and spec 2006 for both little endian power9 and
the future system using the branch that contains the full future pc-relative
changes that I'm submitting bits and pieces from.  I reworked that branch to
use the same patches that are being submitted.

Can I check this into the trunk?
