This patch modifies routine Find_Enclosing_Scope which obtains the scope of an
arbitrary node to return the unique defining entity of an enclosing body. This
automatically takes care of the following corner cases:

   * The body is a subprogram body which does not complete a previous
     declaration. In this case the proper scope is the entity of the

   * The body is an entry body. Due to a limitation in the AST, the
     entry body does not store its correcponsing spec, but utilizes a
     roundabout way of obtaining it. Regardless of the limitation, the
     proper scope is the entity of the entry declaration.

The issue was discovered during the development of the GNATprove tool and
is not visible to end users. No simple test is available because this would
require a debug session.

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

	* sem_util.adb (Find_Enclosing_Scope): Return the unique defining
	entity when the enclosing construct is a body.
