Thanks a bunch for this, which is extremely instructive in many respects. Technically, of course, but also on why GPL (or why not, depending on who you are).

Anyway, and as BWH said, thanks $DEITY the compiler doesn't optimize more aggressively. Just imagine it discovering that this whole struct is constant anyway and inlining (and constant-propagating) the whole thing :-(
