Yes, that is possible. What isn't (or wasn't) is to track down all
of the MEMs we've generated that reference that stack slot to update
their alias sets.
Perhaps with Kenner's changes to use MEM_ATTRS a struct we no longer
need to actually track down the MEMs, we can just walk the structs
to find the slots.
