Change the .ll syntax for comdats and add a syntactic sugar.

Description

Change the .ll syntax for comdats and add a syntactic sugar.

In order to make comdats always explicit in the IR, we decided to make
the syntax a bit more compact for the case of a GlobalObject in a
comdat with the same name.

Just dropping the $name causes problems for

@foo = globabl i32 0, comdat
$bar = comdat ...

and

declare void @foo() comdat
$bar = comdat ...

So the syntax is changed to

@g1 = globabl i32 0, comdat($c1)
@g2 = globabl i32 0, comdat

and

declare void @foo() comdat($c1)
declare void @foo() comdat
