incorrect composite_type result for pointers with mode

composite_type doesn't consider the pointer mode when creating a pointer.
As a consequence:

type char *p32 __attribute__((mode (SI));
type char *p32 __attribute__((mode (SI));

creates a 64-bit pointers (on ia64-hp-openvms and certainly some other configuration).
This breaks some compiler builds (depending on the build options).

As far as I know, this is not a regression, so it may not qualify for a stage 4 submission.

	* c-typeck.c (composite_type): Keep mode for pointers.
