I can't see where the value of "node" is "used" other than as
arguments to function calls. The value of "node" is indeterminate
but it's unclear to me from J2 whether this is sufficient to force
undefined behavior for F2. HP cc and GCC versions prior to 4.0
don't use the same storage for "call_result" and "node" in spite of
the fact that "node" is uninitialized. As a result, we have a
portability issue between GCC 3 and 4.
J2 is informative. Thus, the leap from indeterminate to undefined
