compiler_types.h: Optimize __unqual_scalar_typeof compilation time

If the compiler supports C11's _Generic, use it to speed up compilation
times of __unqual_scalar_typeof(). GCC version 4.9 or later and
all supported versions of Clang support the feature (the oldest
supported compiler that doesn't support _Generic is GCC 4.8, for which
we use the slower alternative).

The non-_Generic variant relies on multiple expansions of
__pick_integer_type -> __pick_scalar_type -> __builtin_choose_expr,
which increases pre-processed code size, and can cause compile times to
increase in files with numerous expansions of READ_ONCE(), or other
users of __unqual_scalar_typeof().

Summary of compile-time benchmarking done by Arnd Bergmann:

  <baseline normalized time>  clang-11   gcc-9
  this patch                      0.78    0.91
  ideal                           0.76    0.86

See https://lkml.kernel.org/r/CAK8P3a3UYQeXhiufUevz=rwe09WM_vSTCd9W+KvJHJcOeQyWVA@mail.gmail.com

Further compile-testing done with:
  gcc 4.8, 4.9, 5.5, 6.4, 7.5, 8.4;
  clang 9, 10.
