Yeah.  If we want for --enable-offload-default also all configured targets,
we could add another keyword for it (all), but I'm not sure it would be
useful, because whenever it would be different from default it would mean
the linking would fail because one or more offloading targets that were
configured isn't supported (installed).

We need to figure out what it means -foffload=nvptx-none -foffload=default,
if the latter overrides the former (as if it wasn't specified), or if it
adds all the remaining offload targets that are default in addition to it.
And similarly figure out what happens with the optional flags, if they are
gathered from all the -foffload= options that refer to a particular target,
or taken from the last -foffload option that mentions that target, something
