[PATCH] Fix PR86654

I am testing the following patch to avoid forcing DIEs for a type context
for method clones late via limbo processing.  Instead hang them off
comp_unit_die if there is no early DIE for the function.

One question is whether the comment "If we're a nested function"
matches up with the decl_function_context (decl) check or whether
we really wanted to check DECL_CONTEXT (decl) == FUNCTION_DECL
which would have made this particular case not match (DECL_CONTEXT
is a RECORD_TYPE which context is a FUNCTION_DECL).

Another option is of course to make clones not inherit
DECL_CONTEXT from the cloned function (for an artificial
instance the "context" is somewhat arbitrary since it isn't
going to be found by lookup).  In fact I long wanted to
represent clones as artificial containers for an
inline instance of the cloned function...

LTO bootstrap and regtest running on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.

If that succeeds I'm going to apply it as a stop-gap measure to
make Firefox build again with LTO but I'm open to revising it.
