I thought about that, but didn't feel it was worth the trouble.  This
only comes up when we're using "new (nothrow) X[]" for X a type with a
destructor, which isn't that often, and in that case we're making at
least one function call (the new operator) and probably more (the
constructors for the Xs), so one extra load-immediate isn't going to
kill us.

And this patch is very minimal.
