	Paolo's patch, this suggestion, and limiting the SYMBOL_REF test
to just legitimize_reload_address all work.  However, GCC now produces
worse code with many more memory accesses for FP constants on PowerPC.

	Was the performance impact of the original patch ever tested on
anything other than x86?  Reload changes can have significant performance
impact on all GCC architectures and this patch should have been tested
much more extensively.
