[Qt-creator] [baremetal] Add additional compiler keywords to CPP editor

Hi Denis,

you might be interested in QTCREATORBUG-21407 where I state exactly the 
same problem. Marco commented, it might be possible to hide these 
extensions from the code model by replacing them with spaces.

I have, however, a suggestion for you. I've started with replacing our 
compiler specific extensions (like @far and @eeprom etc.) with macros.

The scheme is like this:

#ifdef TESTS
#define _far
#define _far @far

In the generic project I define the symbol TESTS and from now on Creator 
can deal with the sources perfectly.

The big advantage is, that the same source code now can be used with 
"standard" compilers, e.g. for unit tests or to allow easier porting.

That is, however, a long term porting effort and nothing that helps
