Good idea, both - I'll incorporate them into the next revision.

That's what I thought, but I couldn't prove it to myself.  I think
there's still a problem, though.

Aha, that's how you do it.  I can confirm that that same test doesn't
cause a fatal error with my patch; however, the .s file looks wrong to
me.  Note where .LFE3 and the .end f line appear.

        #.file  1 "test.c"
        .set    nobopt
        .section .text,0x1,0x6,4,8
        .end    f

        .extern x, 4

        .align  2
        .align  3
        .globl  f
        .ent    f
        .frame  $sp,0,$31               # vars= 0, regs= 0/0, args= 0, extra= 0
        .mask   0x00000000,0
        .fmask  0x00000000,0
        .set    noreorder
        .set    nomacro
        j       $31
        lw      $2,x
        .set    macro
        .set    reorder

I am looking into this.
