[Ada] Show Bit_Order and Scalar_Storage_Order in -gnatR4 output

This patch modifies the behavior of -gnatR4 so that representation
information for bit and scalar storage order gets displayed in all cases
and not just when defaults are overriden.

-- Source --


package Pkg is
   type Root is tagged record
     Data0 : Integer;
   end record;

   type Derived is new Root with record
      Data1 : Integer;
   end record;
end Pkg;

-- Compilation --

$ gnatmake -gnatR4

Representation information for unit Pkg (spec)

for Root'Size use 128;
for Root'Alignment use 8;
for Root use record
   Data0 at 8 range  0 .. 31;
end record;
for Root'Bit_Order use System.Low_Order_First;
for Root'Scalar_Storage_Order use System.Low_Order_First;

for Trootc'Size use 0;
for Trootc'Alignment use 0;
for Trootc use record
end record;
for Trootc'Bit_Order use System.Low_Order_First;
for Trootc'Scalar_Storage_Order use System.Low_Order_First;

for Derived'Size use 192;
for Derived'Alignment use 8;
for Derived use record
   Data0 at  8 range  0 .. 31;
   Data1 at 16 range  0 .. 31;
end record;
for Derived'Bit_Order use System.Low_Order_First;
for Derived'Scalar_Storage_Order use System.Low_Order_First;

for Tderivedc'Size use 0;
for Tderivedc'Alignment use 0;
for Tderivedc use record
   Data0 at  8 range  0 .. 31;
   Data1 at 16 range  0 .. 31;
end record;
for Tderivedc'Bit_Order use System.Low_Order_First;
for Tderivedc'Scalar_Storage_Order use System.Low_Order_First;i

Tested on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, committed on trunk
