glsl: Correctly handle function matching when there are multiple inexact matches
This is a squash cherry pick commit of: glsl: Find the "closest" signature when there are multiple matches. Previously, ir_function::matching_signature had a fatal bug: if a function had more than one non-exact match, it would simply return NULL. This occured, for example, when looking for max(uvec3, uvec3): - max(vec3, vec3) -> score 1 (found first) - max(ivec3, ivec3) -> score 1 (found second...used to return NULL here) - max(uvec3, uvec3) -> score 0 (exact match...the right answer) This did not occur for max(ivec3, ivec3) since the second match found was an exact match. The new behavior is to return a match with the lowest score. If there is an exact match, that will be returned. Otherwise, a match with the least number of implicit conversions is chosen. Fixes piglit tests max-uvec3.vert and glsl-inexact-overloads.shader_test. NOTE: This is a candidate for the 7.10 and 7.11 branches.

According to the GLSL 1.20 specification, "it is a semantic error if there are multiple ways to apply [implicit] conversions [...] such that the call can be made to match multiple signatures." Fixes a regression caused by 60eb63a855cb89962f2d5bb91e238ff2d1ab8702, which implemented the wrong policy of finding a "closest" match. However, this is not a revert, since the original code failed to continue looking for an exact match once it found two inexact matches. It's OK to have multiple inexact matches if there's also an exact match. NOTE: This is a candidate for the 7.10 and 7.11 branches.
