    mesa: better function inlining in the presence of 'return' statements
    Before, the presence of a 'return' statement always prevented inlining
    a function.  This was because we didn't want to accidentally return from
    the _calling_ function.  We still need the semantic of 'return' when inlining
    but we can't always use unconditional branches/jumps (GPUs don't always
    support arbitrary branching).
    Now, we allow inlining functions w/ return if the return is the last
    statement in the function.  This fixes the common case of a function
    that returns a value, such as:
    vec4 square(const in vec4 x)
       return x * x;
    which effectively compiles into:
    vec4 square(const in vec4 x)
       __retVal = x * x;
    The 'return' can be no-op'd now and we can inline the function.
    cherry-picked from master
