Refactoring: explicitly mark whether we have an info table in RawCmm

I introduced this to support explicitly recording the info table label
in RawCmm for another patch I am working on, but it turned out to lead
to significant simplification in those parts of the compiler that
consume RawCmm.

Now, instead of lots of tests for null [CmmStatic] we have a simple
test of a Maybe, and have reduced the number of guys that need to know
how to convert entry->info labels by a TON. There are only 3 callers
of that function now!

Refactoring: use a structured CmmStatics type rather than [CmmStatic]

I observed that the [CmmStatics] within CmmData uses the list in a very stylised way.
The first item in the list is almost invariably a CmmDataLabel. Many parts of the
compiler pattern match on this list and fail if this is not true.

This patch makes the invariant explicit by introducing a structured type CmmStatics
that holds the label and the list of remaining [CmmStatic].

There is one wrinkle: the x86 backend sometimes wants to output an alignment directive just
before the label. However, this can be easily fixed up by parameterising the native codegen
over the type of CmmStatics (though the GenCmmTop parameterisation) and using a pair
(Alignment, CmmStatics) there instead.

As a result, I think we will be able to remove CmmAlign and CmmDataLabel from the CmmStatic
data type, thus nuking a lot of code and failing pattern matches. This change will come as part
of my next patch.

end-to-end, we can't tell how large the gaps are).  Now just count the
