All of the clearing is done to push down memory usage and/or cause
types to be referenced that are otherwise unused.  A way to retain the
latter would be to not recurse into TYPE_CONTEXT during find_decls_types_r
and in free_lang_data_in_type only reset TYPE_CONTEXT when
that is not in fld.pset (thus we didn't visit it, aka, it is unused).

Not sure if this will reliably fix this kind of ICEs.

Note that the fundamental issue with running free-lang-data with -g0
and lto1 with -g is that free-lang-data with -g0 assumes we won't
generate debug information.  I think the case in question is the
only remaining case we do different things -g0 vs. -g in
free-lang-data - and we should definitely remove that inconsistency.

Thus, I suppose even the simple

should be ok at the expense of extra memory/disk space usage at -g0
(note we walk TYPE_CONTEXT for all types in find_decls_types_r, so
even the restriction above looks odd - either we should restrict
recursion as well or never clear TYPE_CONTEXT).
