It deserves mentioning (for the audience) that the right thing happens for
the generated code in the test-case; this problem is mainly an internal
wart (IIUC):
<dnovillo> now, the problem is that if there is a mix of regular and 'const'
functions, we will have created .GLOBAL_VAR 
           unnecessarily.  that's bad.
<dnovillo> testing for !TREE_SIDE_EFFECTS is too broad.  We don't want to
consider 'const' functions.
<hp> yes, but I don't know how to create a test-case for *that*
<dnovillo> hp: this one is good enough.  we created .GLOBAL_VAR.  we shouldn't
have created it.
<dnovillo> the call to bambam shouldn't have a V_MAY_DEF for .GLOBAL_VAR
