Deduce the "no-recurse" function attribute through "backward-reasoning".
Thus, if no call site in the function may cause recursion, the function
does not recurse. Note that "backward-reasoning" is the only reasoning
the Attributor performs right now.
Impact on the statistics (-stats) for LLVM-TS + Spec2006, totaling
almost 80% more localized globals (probably due to the intrinsic
white list used).

Note: Missing "no-recurse" deduction compared to functionattrs is completely, or at least in large parts, due to a bug in the existing code, see: https://llvm.org/PR41336
- Perform "forward-reasoning": If all call sites are in no-recurse functions then the function must be no-recurse.
- Eliminate dead call sites: Similar to the preliminary reasoning in the no-return abstract attribute we can ignore dead call sites.
