Re: PATCH: tree-ssa-sink breaks stack layout

Yes, a work-around (one that doesn't require turning on strict aliasing)
  would be useful.  However, I think it would be better if we could find
a way to paper this over by default so that fewer people notice the bug.

"code doesn't work; debug for a while; looks like compiler is broken;
search web for work-around; rebuild with work-around" is not as as good
an experience as "code works". :-)

Yes.  I can't make any promises, but I'll certainly look for
opportunities for CodeSourcery to help.
