The problem appears to lie with the new satisfies_memory_constraint_p
which is passing just the address to valid_address_p but the constraint
is a memory constraint (which wants the mem to be retained).

One option is to re-construct the MEM using the address_info provided
to valid_address_p. This has mode, address space and whether it was
actually a MEM to start with so there is enough information. 

Another issue noticed while looking at this:
process_address does not seem to make an attempt to check for
EXTRA_MEMORY_CONSTRAINT even though it does decompose memory addresses.
For the lea address case then the address is checked with valid_address_p.
This seems inconsistent, is it intentional?

The patch below on top of Richard's addresses both problems and for the
fldmdbd test gets the correct output. I haven't done any more testing
than that though. I suspect there may be a better approach to achieve
the same effect but at least this shows what is wrong with the original
