Test case extracted from linux drivers/usb/gadget/ether.c

Attached test case loops forever in ConvertToPacked (llvm-convert.cpp) trying
to add ever-increasing amounts of padding to the packed structure. This looks
like a regression as I can't reproduce with 2.5.

It looks like it's getting confused by the iMACAddress field, which is declared
in the structure but missing from the constant - it actually works properly if
either the iMACAddress field is removed entirely, or if an explicit value is
added for the field in the constant decl.

Possible patch:
Index: gcc/llvm-convert.cpp
--- gcc/llvm-convert.cpp        (revision 76305)
+++ gcc/llvm-convert.cpp        (working copy)

       PadTy = Context.getArrayType(PadTy, AlignedEltOffs-EltOffs);
+    EltOffs += TD.getTypeAllocSize(PadTy);
     ++e;  // One extra element to scan.

This fixes the infinite loop, and produces the correct output for this testcase
and a few similar cases I've tried. I'm not 100% certain there aren't other
issues around this though.
