This may not be suitable for all targets (for example PNaCl), so the attached patch adds a target hook that CodeGen queries. The target can state its preference for having or not having the intrinsic generated. Non-PNaCl behavior remains unchanged; PNaCl-specific test added.

It would be isolated to target-specific logic in target-specific parts of the toolchain instead of inventing a new option that's basically "do what PNaCl wants" and then propagating it through the entire compiler.
