The new concatenation circuitry installed some time ago, results in
missing debug information when a constant string is initialized with
the result of a concatenation. This is because the resulting generated
renaming did not generate required debug information. This patch fixes
the problem with concatenation, and is actually a little more general
than that, so may fix some other problems with missing debug info.

The following is a test program

     1. procedure debugconcat is
     2.    x : string := "hello";
     3.    y : string := "goodbye";
     4.    z : constant string := x & y;
     5. begin
     6.    null;
     7. end;

Before the patch, the debugger could not print the string z. With the
following script:

gnatmake debugconcat -g
cp gdbinit2 .gdbinit
gdb --quiet debugconcat.exe >log 2>&1
rm .gdbinit
grep " = " log

where gdbinit2 contains:
break debugconcat.adb:6
print z

the output of the grep command should be:

$1 = "hellogoodbye"

Tested on x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, committed on trunk
