Turn `__GLASGOW_HASKELL_LLVM__` into an integer again

In GHC < 8.0.1, the value of `__GLASGOW_HASKELL_LLVM__`, exposed
through the preprocessor when compiled with `-fllvm`, was an integer
value, encoded according to some rules specified in the user guide.

Due to an oversight, in GHC 8.0.1 the value of this define became a
tuple, exposed as e.g. `(3, 7)`. This was an unintended regression.

This patch turns the value of the `__GLASGOW_HASKELL_LLVM__` definition
into a single integer again, but changes the formatting of said number
slightly. Before, any LLVM version where the major or minor component >=
10 would cause ambiguous values for `__GLASGOW_HASKELL_LLVM__`. With
this patch, the value is in line with `__GLASGOW_HASKELL__`, adding a
padding `0` in-between major and minor component if applicable (we
assume no minors >= 100 will ever exist).

The documentation in the user guide is updated accordingly, and a
reference is made in the 8.0.2 release notes.
