A couple of obj-c++ tests were failing[1] because the tokens '[[' can
either be the beginning of a c++11 attribute (that is itself at the
beginning of a statement), or the beginning of a nested
objc-message-expression.  This patch resolves the ambiguity by
tentatively parsing the c++11 attribute and if it fails, then consider
the objc-message-expression.

I missed this initially because it didn't occur to me that
--enable-languages=all,ada does not include obj-c++.  Shame on me.  I
have now updated my compile farm scripts to use
--enable-language=all,ada,obj-c++,go and I


FAIL: obj-c++.dg/syntax-error-6.mm -fgnu-runtime  (test for errors, line 11)
FAIL: obj-c++.dg/syntax-error-6.mm -fgnu-runtime (test for excess errors)
FAIL: obj-c++.dg/template-8.mm -fgnu-runtime (test for excess errors)

Tested on x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu against trunk.


	* parser (cp_parser_statement):  Parse c++11 attributes tentatively.
	(cp_parser_std_attribute_spec_seq): Do not warn too early about
	using c++11 attributes in non c++11 mode.
