This is almost a reincarnation of https://reviews.llvm.org/D15977 originally
implemented by Amjad Aboud. It was discussed on llvm-dev [0], committed
with its backend counterpart [1], but finally reverted [2].

This patch makes clang to emit debug info for function-local static variables,
records (classes, structs and unions) and typdefs correctly scoped if
those function-local entites defined within a lexical (bracketed) block.

Before this patch, clangs emits all those entities directly scoped in
DISubprogram no matter where they were really defined, causing
debug info loss (reported several times in [3], [4], [5]).
