Still testing whether I actually strictly need it for ARRAY_TYPE 
nowadays (these patches are really old...). However, the TYPE_FIELDS of 
a RECORD_TYPE seem to be mostly ignored once the frontends are done, but 
it's very easy for other parts of the compiler to take the TREE_TYPE of 
an ARRAY_TYPE. Fixing that up is simple and seems like a good thing to 
do for consistency (I notice that maybe I should add VECTOR_TYPE).

For a POINTER_TYPE, it is correct not to modify the pointed-to type. We 
want to express that a variable of that pointer type lives in an address 
space, not that the pointed-to type is different.

Will change, and update the other patches accordingly.
