This amends the caveats section of the GCC 12 release notes according
to the STABS deprecation.

I'll wait with pushing to the point it reflects the state on trunk
rather than projecting what will be the state for GCC 12.

Most of the ports actually default to emit DWARF5, some DWARF4, some DWARF2,
so perhaps better would be to emit DWARF (version 2 or later) debugging info?
