Add support for attribute 'trivial_abi'.

Description

Add support for attribute 'trivial_abi'.

The 'trivial_abi' attribute can be applied to a C++ class, struct, or
union. It makes special functions of the annotated class (the destructor
and copy/move constructors) to be trivial for the purpose of calls and,
as a result, enables the annotated class or containing classes to be
passed or returned using the C ABI for the underlying type.

When a type that is considered trivial for the purpose of calls despite
having a non-trivial destructor (which happens only when the class type
or one of its subobjects is a 'trivial_abi' class) is passed to a
function, the callee is responsible for destroying the object.
