gengtype & mark_hook in unions not working

Hello All,

I observed in that 
sometimes mark_hook-s are not working (and MELT needs them strongly).

Actually, the following test case shows that mark hooks are not emitted when 
indirectly inside a union member.

To be specific, with the following file tmarkh.h

   /* file tmarkh.h */
   #define MYUTAG 1
   union GTY ((desc("%0.u_int"))) myutest_un {
     int GTY((skip)) u_int;
     struct mytest_st GTY ((tag("MYUTAG"))) u_mytest;

   static GTY(()) union myutest_un *myutestptr;

   static inline void mymarker(struct mytest_st*s)
     s->myflag = 1;
   /* eof tmarkh.h */
when running gengtype (the one from the trunk, or the gcc-4.7 one) with
  gengtype  -D -v -r gtype.state -P _g-tmarkh.h tmarkh.h
you can observe that the generated _g-tmarkh.h don't contain any call to 
mymarker. If the static variable (here myutestptr) is declared with the 
struct mytest_st* type, the marker is emitted.

I'm investigating that bug and hope to submit a patch soon.
