[Debugger] Add global variable support

Description

Currently, we have no way of inspecting the values of global variables. However, gcc does not implement .debug_pubnames, so In order to be able to support this, we need to build a lookup table of externally visible variables similar to GlobalTypeCache.

(In #11387) The first part of this request (function-associated expressions) has been implemented in hrev48254. However, global expressions will need to wait until we have the necessarily support to resolve global variables at all, as without those, such expressions wouldn't be terribly useful.
