  stand: remove CLANG_NO_IAS from btx and gptboot

  Many components under stand/ had CLANG_NO_IAS added when Clang's
  Integrated Assembler (IAS) did not handle .codeNN directives.  Clang
  gained support quite some time ago, and we can now build stand/ with
  IAS.

  Note that in some cases there are small differences in the generated
  output, so CLANG_NO_IAS should be removed only after testing (or after
  finding no differences in the output).

  btx: rename .s files to .S to use Clang IAS

  As part of the migration away from obsolete binutils we want to retire
  GNU as.  Most assembly files used on amd64 have a .S extension and are
  assembled with Clang's integrated assembler; rename two files in
  stand/i386/btx/lib to .S to use IAS as well.

  The generated .text is identical (the entire .o files are not, as Clang
  adds debug info).
