  Log Message:
  [Driver] Default riscv*- triples to -fdebug-default-version=4

This adds a RISC-V special case to ToolChain::GetDefaultDwarfVersion,
affecting Linux/Haiku/RISCVToolChain.

DWARF v5 .debug_loclists/.debug_rnglists's
DW_LLE_offset_pair/DW_RLE_offset_pair entry kinds utilitize `.uleb128 A-B`
directives where A and B reference local labels in code sections.
When A and B are separated by a RISC-V linker-relaxable instruction,
A-B is incorrectly folded without a relocation, causing incorrect debug

void ext(void);
int foo(int x) {ext(); return 0;}
// DW_AT_location [DW_FORM_loclistx] of a DW_TAG_formal_parameter references a DW_LLE_offset_pair that can be incorrect after linker relaxation.

int ext(void);
void foo() { {
  int ret = ext();
  if (__builtin_expect(ret, 0))
} }
// DW_AT_ranges [DW_FORM_rnglistx] of a DW_TAG_lexical_block references a DW_RLE_offset_pair that can be incorrect after linker relaxation.

D157657 will implement R_RISCV_SET_ULEB128/R_RISCV_SUB_ULEB128
relocations, fixing the issue, but the relocation is only supported by
bleeding-edge binutils 2.41 and not by lld/ELF yet.

The goal is to make the emitted DWARF correct after linking.
Many users don't care about the default DWARF version, but a linker
error will be unacceptable. Let's just downgrade the default DWARF
version, before binutils>=2.41 is more widely available.

An alternative compatibility option is to add a toggle to DwarfDebug.cpp,
but that doesn't seem like a good idea.
