[DebugInfo] Insert DW_OP_deref when spilling indirect DBG_VALUEs

This comes up in optimized debug info for C++ programs that pass and
return objects indirectly by address. In these programs,
llvm.dbg.declare survives optimization, which causes us to emit indirect
DBG_VALUE instructions. The fast register allocator knows to insert
DW_OP_deref when spilling indirect DBG_VALUE instructions, but the
LiveDebugVariables did not until this change.

This fixes part of PR34513. I need to look into why this doesn't work at
-O0 and I'll send follow up patches to handle that.
