Patch to add new target macro: TARGET_WARN_RETURN_TYPE

Hi Guys,

  I would like to get approval for the following patch.  It adds a new
  target macro called 'TARGET_WARN_RETURN_TYPE' which can be used to
  disable the check for a non-void function returning without
  providing a return value.  This ability would be useful for the ARM
  port which supports the notion of a "naked" function whoes prologue
  and epilogue is left entirely up to the programmer to code.

	* c-decl.c (finish_function): Check TARGET_WARN_RETURN_TYPE
	(if defined) before generating a warning message about a
	non-void function not returning a value.

	* tm.texi (TARGET_WARN_RETURN_TYPE): Docuemnt.
