This appears to be the reason why we don't get recursive tail calls
on hppa64-hpux. sequence_uses_addressof returns nonzero because
current_function_internal_arg_pointer is found. This causes
no_sibcalls_this_function to be set. Thus, I think that all the
sibcall tests need to be xfailed for this target.
