[Bug ada/37796] New: Globals and functions private to generic body expo

Subject: [Bug ada/37796] New: Globals and functions private to generic body exported when instantiated in a spec
From: "baldrick at gcc dot gnu dot org"

When compiling h.ads, the global variable Global and function Subroutine should
be eliminated.  They are not, because they have TREE_PUBLIC set (corresponds to
Is_Public in the Ada f-e) even though they are internal to the body of the
generic package G. This seems to be because G is instantiated in a package
spec.
The result is that Global and Subroutine are marked as external symbols.

Reproduce as follows: gcc -S -O1 h.ads -o - | grep h__gi__
There should be no output.

-- testcase --
generic package G is
   pragma Elaborate_Body;
end;
package body G is
   Global : Integer;
   procedure Subroutine is begin null; end;
end;
with G;
package H is
   package GI is new G;
end;
