[Compiler] Fix LLVM_NODISCARD for GCC

This branch is currently dead since we don't use C++17.
#if __cplusplus > 201402L && LLVM_HAS_CPP_ATTRIBUTE(nodiscard)
#define LLVM_NODISCARD [[nodiscard]]

This branch is Clang-only.
#elif LLVM_HAS_CPP_ATTRIBUTE(clang::warn_unused_result)
#define LLVM_NODISCARD [[clang::warn_unused_result]]

While we could use gnu variant [[gnu::warn_unused_result]], it is not ideal because it works only on functions.
/home/xbolva00/LLVM/llvm/include/llvm/ADT/ArrayRef.h:41:24: warning: ‘warn_unused_result’ attribute only applies to function types [-Wattributes]

GCC (checked 5,6,7,8) seems to enable [[nodiscard]] even in C++14 mode and does not produce warnings that nodiscard is C++17 feature. but Clang does - but we do not reach it due the code above. So it affects only GCC and does what we want.
