[debug-early] Allow checking of DECL_ABSTRACT in decl_ultimate_origin

Michael, I really don't understand the need for this change in your 
original patch.  I don't know if this was a temporary testing change or 

For instance, you had the following commented out in your original patch:

   if (/*DECL_ABSTRACT (decl) &&*/ DECL_ABSTRACT_ORIGIN (decl) == decl)
      return NULL_TREE;

but then you also had:

  tree origin = decl_ultimate_origin (decl);
-  if (origin != NULL)
+  if (origin != NULL && origin != decl)

It seems to me that if origin is not null, then "origin != decl" will 
always be true, since with your change, decl_ultimate_origin() will 
always return NULL when DECL_ABSTRACT_ORIGIN (decl) == decl.

I suppose your /*DECL_ABSTRACT (decl) &&*/ change could be used in other 
uses of decl_ultimate_origin() that don't have this "&& origin != decl" 

Anyway... I don't understand the need for it (actually, to be honest, I 
don't understand what you were trying to do).  I'm going to remove it.

If you feel strongly about it, please chime in, and perhaps provide an 
explanation so I can include a comment.

I'm happy to report that with this and the last set of patches, both C 
and C++ guality tests have <= regressions than mainline.  Yay.

Committing to mainline.
