I think I know what's going on here.  The root of the problem is that
pa-64.h defines an ARG_POINTER_REGNUM that isn't a fixed reg, and isn't
eliminable.  The arg_pointer isn't even a call-saved reg.  That breaks a
number of places in the compiler.

So I went down the path of trying to fix things properly by defining
ELIMINABLE_REGS and so on, but I ended in a maze of twisty little passages
labelled "Unrecognizable instruction", like this one:

/src/parisc/gcc/gcc/libgcc2.c: In function `__moddi3':
/src/parisc/gcc/gcc/libgcc2.c:601: Unrecognizable insn:
(insn 1289 209 1298 (set (reg:SI 50 %fr22)
        (subreg:SI (plus:DI (reg:DI 30 %r30)
                (const_int -272 [0xfffffef0])) 0)) -1 (nil)
    (nil))
/src/parisc/gcc/gcc/libgcc2.c:601: Internal compiler error in
extract_insn, at recog.c:2134

Anyway, this hack seems to fix it for me.

	* rtl.h (ARG_POINTER_INVARIANT): Define as 1 if undef.
	* rtlanal.c (rtx_unstable_p): Qualify arg_pointer_rtx match with
	ARG_POINTER_INVARIANT.
	(rtx_varies_p): Likewise.
	(rtx_addr_can_trap_p): Likewise.
	* local-alloc.c (function_invariant_p): Likewise.
	* loop.c (loop_invariant_p): Likewise.
	* tm.texi (ARG_POINTER_INVARIANT): Describe.
