ARM code generation bug with -O2...

There was a testcase included in the message.  The original problem was noticed
compiling nfscache.c in the ARM Linux kernel.  I reduced the code that caused
the warning to about 15 lines of C code included in the message.

Compiling that with `gcc -c -O2 -save-temps scott.c` yields the warning and
assembler listing I included.

There shouldn't be a problem including it in the testsuite, the original file is
GPL'ed and I have a copyright assignment on file.
