[OpenMP][Libomptarget] Introduce Remote Offloading Plugin

This introduces a remote offloading plugin for libomptarget. This
implementation relies on gRPC and protobuf, so this library will only
build if both libraries are available on the system. The corresponding
server is compiled to openmp-offloading-server.

This is a large change, but the only way to split this up is into RTL/server
but I fear that could introduce an inconsistency amongst them.

Ideally, tests for this should be added to the current ones that but that is
problematic for at least one reason. Given that libomptarget registers plugin
on a first-come-first-serve basis, if we wanted to offload onto a local x86
through a different process, then we'd have to either re-order the plugin list
in rtl.cpp (which is what I did locally for testing) or find a better
solution for runtime plugin registration in libomptarget.
