I think we do not need to know the class in this case dealing with
pointer-to-member functions.

It cannot deal with an instance pointer of the form
*(&((struct Container *) this)->item + (unsigned int) itemfun.__delta).

That said, any other ideas are of course appreciated ;)  The testcase
that triggers the warning is g++.dg/opt/pmf1.C if you apply
