Some type kinds in CTF (functions, arrays, pointers, slices, and
cvr-quals) are intrinsically nameless: the ctt_name field in the CTF
is always zero, and the libctf API provides no way to set a name.
But the compiler can and does sometimes set names for some of these
kinds: in particular, the name it sets on CTF_K_FUNCTION types is the
means it uses to force the name of the function into the string table
so that it can point at it from the function info section.

So null out the name at hashing time so that the deduplicator can
correctly detect that e.g. function types identical but for name should
be considered truly identical, since they will not have a name when the
deduplicator re-emits them into the output.

	* testsuite/ld-ctf/data-func-conflicted.d: Shrink the expected
	size of the type section now that function types are being
	deduplicated properly.

	* ctf-dedup.c (ctf_dedup_rhash_type): Null out the names of nameless
	type kinds, just in case the input has named them.
