[OpenMP] Codegen for the 'target parallel' directive on the NVPTX device.

Description

[OpenMP] Codegen for the 'target parallel' directive on the NVPTX device.

This patch adds codegen for the 'target parallel' directive on the NVPTX
device. We term offload OpenMP directives such as 'target parallel' and
'target teams distribute parallel for' as SPMD constructs. SPMD constructs,
in contrast to Generic ones like the plain 'target', can never contain
a serial region.

SPMD constructs can be handled more efficiently on the GPU and do not
require the Warp Loop of the Generic codegen scheme. This patch adds
SPMD codegen support for 'target parallel' on the NVPTX device and can
be reused for other SPMD constructs.
