The array descriptor is what is passed but it needs dereferencing for
pointer, dummy, character arrays.  Doing so fixes PR18689, in addition

I am not pushing backwards!  Anyway, I am now happy to combine the ifs
appropriately.  I'll do it tonight and resubmit the patch as a fix for both

It will be along the lines:

      /* Dereference non-character scalar and pointer
         dummy arguments. HOW DO I INDENT THIS?*/
      if (sym->attr.dummy
	  && ((sym->ts.type != BT_CHARACTER
	      && !sym->attr.dimension)
	    || (sym->attr.pointer
	      && sym->ts.type == BT_CHARACTER)))
	se->expr = gfc_build_indirect_ref (se->expr);

      /* Dereference pointer variables.
         TODO - sort out attr.function and attr.result
         for characters. */
      if ((sym->attr.pointer || sym->attr.allocatable)
	  && (sym->attr.dummy
	      || sym->attr.result
	      || sym->attr.function
	      || !sym->attr.dimension)
          && sym->ts.type != BT_CHARACTER)
	se->expr = gfc_build_indirect_ref (se->expr);

I believe that some of the other character PRs will be fixed by going
through the logic of the second block, as the TODO indicates.
