[PGO] Use linkonce_odr linkage for __profd_ variables in comdat groups

This fixes relocations against __profd_ symbols in discarded sections,
which is PR41380.

In general, instrumentation happens very early, and optimization and
inlining happens afterwards. The counters for a function are calculated
early, and after inlining, counters for an inlined function may be
widely referenced by other functions.

For C++ inline functions of all kinds (linkonce_odr &
available_externally mainly), instr profiling wants to deduplicate these
__profc_ and __profd_ globals. Otherwise the binary would be quite

I made __profd_ and __profc_ comdat in r355044, but I chose to make
__profd_ internal. At the time, I was only dealing with coverage, and in
that case, none of the instrumentation needs to reference __profd_.
However, if you use PGO, then instrumentation passes add calls to
__llvm_profile_instrument_range which reference __profd_ globals. The
solution is to make these globals externally visible by using
linkonce_odr linkage for data as was done for counters.

This is safe because PGO adds a CFG hash to the names of the data and
counter globals, so if different TUs have different globals, they will
get different data and counter arrays.

[PGO] Don't use comdat groups for counters & data on COFF

For COFF, a comdat group is really a symbol marked
IMAGE_COMDAT_SELECT_ANY and zero or more other symbols marked
IMAGE_COMDAT_SELECT_ASSOCIATIVE. Typically the associative symbols in
the group are not external and are not referenced by other TUs, they are
things like debug info, C++ dynamic initializers, or other section
registration schemes. The Visual C++ linker reports a duplicate symbol
error for symbols marked IMAGE_COMDAT_SELECT_ASSOCIATIVE even if they
would be discarded after handling the leader symbol.

Fixes coverage-inline.cpp in check-profile after r372020.
