Re: [PATCH] Add target hook in C front end

In the backend that needs them. Look at the INIT_C_BUILTINS for where it
uses pushdecl and with the nodes that are created.

I tried making this a vector in the target struct, unfortunately there
isn't a way to do this and still have languages other than C/C++ at the
moment. :) I tried to make this a non-MIPS specific solution, and just
adds a hook that enables this if you need it.

I'm open to suggestions on how to do this though. This was just the best
solution that could be seen. On the bright side I may have a spec file
that only uses about 250 lines to properly do this one thing for the
MIPS backend. I'm not positive though because it takes about 10 days to
test it every time I change something. ;)
