This patch changes the default overflow checking mode to suppressed
in the case of targets that support backend divide and overflow
checking as indicated by the appropriate flags in Targparm being
set. There are no such targets currently, so this change has no
effect and no test is needed.

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

2012-10-05  Robert Dewar  <dewar@adacore.com>

	* gnat1drv.adb (Adjust_Global_Switches): Default for overflow checking
	is suppressed, even if backend overflow/divide checks are enabled.
