RFC: BC-ABI and Old Verifier

  How about making either -findirect-dispatch the default
*or* resurrecting the old verifier for the non-BC-ABI

The current situation would cause users unnecessary pain
(e.g. PR 5537) so it should be resolved either one way
or the other,  or we risk having to listen to lots of
user complaints when GCC 4.0 is released.

With the BC-ABI merge, a lot of the old verifier was
disabled/crippled (e.g. subroutine verification):


If we can't quite make BC-ABI the default yet, we
should revert verify.c to revision 1.65 (just before
the BC-ABI merge).

My 2p.
