[flang][driver] Add PrescanAction frontend action (nfc)

This new action encapsulates all actions that require the prescanner to
be run before proceeding with other processing. By adding this new
action, we are better equipped to control which actions _do_ run the
prescanner and which _do not_.

The following actions that require the prescanner are refactored to
inherit from PrescanAction:

  • PrintPreprocessedAction
  • ParseSyntaxOnlyAction .

New virtual method is introduced to facilitate all this:

  • BeginSourceFileAction

Like in Clang, this method is run inside BeginSourceFile. In other
words, it is invoked before ExecuteAction for the corresponding
frontend action is run. This method allows us to:

  • carry out any processing that is always required by the action (e.g. run the prescanner)
  • fine tune the settings/options on a file-by-file basis (e.g. to decide between fixed-form and free-form based on file extension)

This patch implements non-functional-changes.
