Up until now, to create our header record (pair), we reused struct
_ddebug(|_sites), initializing the pair with "impossible" field values
(for a pr_debug() site), which makes it recognizable as a header not a
pr-debug callsite.

Now we want to specialize the header; differentiate it from its model,
then we can drop _ddebug.site, and use header.site indirectly.

This commit has several elements combining:

Update DEFINE_DYNAMIC_DEBUG_TABLE by replacing "struct _ddebug*" with
"union _ddebug*_header".  This change places the new object types into
our 2 elf sections.

our 2 new union types have 2 jobs:

a.fit properly in the section/array.  We do this by putting the struct
  inside the union, making the unions the same size as their contained
  structs.  This was sufficient to fix a data-misalignment crash on
  2nd loop (ie 1st record after header) in _init.

b.unions need the same field defns as their models, as refd in:
  DEFINE_DYNAMIC_DEBUG_TABLE() - inits
  is_dyndbg_header_pair(i,s)   - validates that init
  use anonymous struct.

RFC: My "anonymous union/struct fu" feels incomplete.  The struct in b
must contain all the fields of its outer union's own contained struct,
maybe even in the same order (tho not obvious yet).
