[DebugInfo][DAG] Distinguish different kinds of location indirection

From SelectionDAGs point of view, debug variable locations specified with
dbg.declare and dbg.addr are indirect -- they specify the address of
something. But calling conventions might mean that a Value is placed on
the stack somewhere, and this too is indirection. Previously this was
mixed up in the "IsIndirect" field of DBG_VALUE insts; this patch
separates them by encoding the indirection in a DIExpression.

If we have a dbg.declare or dbg.addr, then the expression produces an
address that then becomes a DWARF memory location. We can represent
this by putting a DW_OP_deref on the _end_ of the expression. If a Value
has been placed on the stack, then we need to put a DW_OP_deref on the
_start_ of the expression, to load the Value from the stack and have
the rest of the expression operate on it.
