Subject[PATCH -tip] compiler_types.h: Optimize __unqual_scalar_typeof compilation time
From
If the compiler supports C11's _Generic, use it to speed up compilation
times of __unqual_scalar_typeof(). GCC version 4.9 or later and
all supported versions of Clang support the feature (the oldest
supported compiler that doesn't support _Generic is GCC 4.8, for which
we use the slower alternative).

The non-_Generic variant relies on multiple expansions of
__pick_integer_type -> __pick_scalar_type -> __builtin_choose_expr,
which increases pre-processed code size, and can cause compile times to
increase in files with numerous expansions of READ_ONCE(), or other
users of __unqual_scalar_typeof().

Summary of compile-time benchmarking done by Arnd Bergmann [1]:

<baseline normalized time> clang-11 gcc-9
this patch 0.78 0.91
ideal 0.76 0.86

Further compile-testing done with:
gcc 4.8, 4.9, 5.5, 6.4, 7.5, 8.4;
clang 9, 10.
