  [compiler-rt] Add opt-in -ftrivial-auto-var-init flag for writing over uninitialized stack variiables

This might allow lsan to find more leaks that would have gone
undetected. When lsan searches for leaked pointers on the stack, if a
leaked pointer that was pushed to the stack in a prior function call
would not be scrubbed on a future function call, then the scan will see
the pointer on the stack and not mark it as leaked. Such holes can exist
in the lsan runtime where there may be uninitialized data. Adding
auto-var-init can scrub some of that data and might be able to catch
more leaks that would've gone undetected this way.
