Add -fprofile-dir= to clang.

Description

Add -fprofile-dir= to clang.

-fprofile-dir=path allows the user to specify where .gcda files should be
emitted when the program is run. In particular, this is the first flag that
causes the .gcno and .o files to have different paths, LLVM is extended to
support this. -fprofile-dir= does not change the file name in the .gcno (and
thus where lcov looks for the source) but it does change the name in the .gcda
(and thus where the runtime library writes the .gcda file). It's different from
a GCOV_PREFIX because a user can observe that the GCOV_PREFIX_STRIP will strip
paths off of -fprofile-dir= but not off of a supplied GCOV_PREFIX.

To implement this we split -coverage-file into -coverage-data-file and
-coverage-notes-file to specify the two different names. The !llvm.gcov
metadata node grows from a 2-element form {string coverage-file, node dbg.cu}
to 3-elements, {string coverage-notes-file, string coverage-data-file, node
dbg.cu}. In the 3-element form, the file name is already "mangled" with
.gcno/.gcda suffixes, while the 2-element form left that to the middle end
pass.
