This is for the google/gcc-4_6 branch only.

Fix output_indirect_string so that it does not output strings that
have already been written to the .debug_str.dwo section.

This is a backport of  part of an unrelated change from upstream 4.7:

Tested: bootstrap, core, mantle, crust (in progress).

	* dwarf2out.c (output_indirect_string): Check for DW_FORM_strp
	instead of presence of label and non-zero refcount.
