I think there's more to the problem than this.  gen_rtx_CONST_INT is at
this point only called with values that shouldn't go to const_int_htab -
arg == 0 at the crash.  It seems that

  if (arg >= - MAX_SAVED_CONST_INT && arg <= MAX_SAVED_CONST_INT)
    return const_int_rtx[arg + MAX_SAVED_CONST_INT];

(emit-rtl.c lines 242-3) is getting miscompiled.  (Note that the stage1
compiler manages to build a stage2 compiler, but the stage2 compiler
crashes as soon as it is used.)

Could the following change be relevant?  (Not tested before/after, but it
seems the most plausible.)
