AMDGPU/SI: Add amdgpu_kernel calling convention.

Authored by nhaustov on May 4 2016, 6:51 AM.



This will be used for AMDGPU_HSA_KERNEL symbol type in output ELF.

Also, in the future unused non-kernels may be optimized.

This is going to break all frontends which don't emit this calling convention. I think we will need to keep this hard-coded to true until we can update the frontends.

Should add some bitcode compatability tests

Also recognize SPIR_KERNEL as kernel for now to make sure other frontent (HCC) works.
Add bitcode compatibility tests for amdgpu and other missing calling conventions.

I'll also probably split this change into two parts and submit AMDGPUMachineFunction.* changes after corresponding Clang change. This will ensure frontends work.
