this is not true in GCC, since a while now -- 2 years ago i
had to write this code to stop GCC from emitting "trap" when
accessing the 0x0 pointer, from powerpc/oea/oea_machdep.c:
* Load pointer with 0 behind GCC's back, otherwise it will
* emit a "trap" instead.
static __inline__ uintptr_t
__asm volatile ("li %0, 0" : "=r"(dont_tell_gcc) :);
