Existing practice for this extension has the labels only valid for
computed goto, with the actual values unspecified and no requirements for
If they are used in static initializers they also need to be usable in all
calls to that function. Otherwise, they are probably only usable for
computed goto within the particular call to the function in which the
label value is taken.
