For the library part, you could have just used a single
GFC_ARRAY_DESCRIPTOR macro, just use
GFC_ARRAY_DESCRIPTOR (, GFC_INTEGER_1) etc. when you want the flexible
array member.

The compiler side will be harder, wonder if we want to always use
as the TREE_TYPE of things what we use right now and have somewhere
in the lang_specific part a pointer to a type with flexible array member
and whenever trying to dereference something build a MEM_REF with the
flexible array member type; plus whenever passing it to some other function.
Or if we have some easy way to find out what objects will need local
variables with descriptors (those need the non-flexible array member stuff)
and others (e.g. dummy arguments etc.) where we could use just the flexible
array members.
