[OpenCL][Doc] Added OpenCL vendor extension description to user manual doc

Added description of a new feature that allows to specify
vendor extension in flexible way using compiler pragma instead
of modifying source code directly (committed in clang@r289979).

Review: D29829

OpenCL Extensions
All of the ``cl_khr_*`` extensions from `the official OpenCL specification
up to and including version 2.0 are available and set per target depending on the
support available in the specific architecture.
It is possible to alter the default extensions setting per target using
``-cl-ext`` flag. (See :ref:`flags description <opencl_cl_ext>` for more details).
Vendor extensions can be added flexibly by declaring the list of types and
functions associated with each extensions enclosed within the following
compiler pragma directives:
.. code-block:: c
#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION the_new_extension_name : begin
// declare types and functions associated with the extension here
#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION the_new_extension_name : end
For example, parsing the following code adds ``my_t`` type and ``my_func``
function to the custom ``my_ext`` extension.
.. code-block:: c
#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION my_ext : begin
typedef struct{
int a;
void my_func(my_t);
#pragma OPENCL EXTENSION my_ext : end
Declaring the same types in different vendor extensions is disallowed.
