spirv: Eliminate dead input/output variables after translation.

spirv_to_nir can generate input/output variables which are illegal
for the current shader stage, which would cause nir_validate_shader
to balk.  After my recent commit to start decorating arrays as compact, started
hitting validation errors due to outputs in a TCS (not intended for the
TCS at all) not being per-vertex arrays.

Thanks to Jason Ekstrand for suggesting this approach.

Fixes: ef99f4c8 compiler: Mark clip/cull distance arrays as compact before lowering.
