Re: [gfortran,patch] Fix for PR 27478

I spent a bit of time this morning trying to supply the address to
DECL_RESULT but kept getting the likes of:
internal compiler error: in expand_expr_real_1, at expr.c:6882
Somebody more adept in these matters could undoubtedly get a result(!)
from this approach.

I also tried to do some of the obvious things in gfc_conv_expr_reference
but kept returning from gfc_conv_expr with the right TREE_TYPE and
a NULL expression.

Thus, forcing a memory location, using TREE_ADDRESSABLE, so that the
entry result variable can be addressed does seem to do the trick and
might even be strictly necessary!

OK - it regtests for me too. Could you dejgnuify the reduced testcase
and submit that too, please?
