Dodji's final patch for 45088 fixed the GDB regression, but as Jakub recently pointed out to me, we still end up with redundant DW_TAG_pointer_types in some cases, with one for pointer-to-class and the other for pointer-to-injected-class-name. We strip the injected-class-name in dwarf2out so that both pointers point to the same target type. To avoid this, let's strip the injected-class-name earlier in the front end.

Of course, this is what Dodji first proposed to do for this issue, and I steered him wrong...

Tested x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, applying to trunk.

    	* decl.c (grokdeclarator): Strip the injected-class-name typedef
    	if we are building a declaration or compound type.
