Suppress no effect warning when user already knows
The SPARK toolset no longer emits a "subprogram Bla has no effect" warning when the user has added a Global/Depends aspect on Bla since this indicates that the effects of the subprogram are already known to her. The message is also suppressed when Bla is marked No_Return and is deemed to abnormaly terminate.

Lift restriction on calls to No_Return procedures
This lifts the SPARK RM restriction forcing calls to procedures marked No_Return to appear either at the end of a subprogram or as the only statement inside an if-statement without else/elsif part. Indeed, this restriction is not needed anymore, similarly to what was done for raise-statements already.

The runtimes provided for powerpc-elf bareboard now runs on mpc8641 platforms instead of PReP. The former platform is still available, high performance while the latter has been deprecated for more than 10 years. The GNATemulator product has been updated too.
