[GCOVProfiling] don't profile Fn's w/ noprofile attribute

Authored by nickdesaulniers on Jun 14 2021, 12:34 PM.



Similar to D104475, the Linux kernel would like to avoid compiler
generated code in certain functions. The no_profile function
attribute can be used in C to generate the the noprofile fn attr in IR.
Respect that from GCOVProfiling.
