A wrapper around llvm.init.trampoline

The attached .ll file contains a function calling llvm.init.trampoline, passing
its own arguments on to it. LLVM doesn't like this:
$ llc make_trampoline.ll
llvm.init_trampoline parameter #2 must resolve to a function.
  %tramp = tail call i8* @llvm.init.trampoline(i8* %mem, i8* %fn, i8* %data)
Broken module found, compilation aborted!

Commenting out this assert in the verifier shows it is currently backed up by
one in the SelectionDAGBuilder (by way of cast<Function>):

Is there any reason for this?
As far as I can tell, there's no reason llvm.init.trampoline shouldn't be able
to work for function pointers; the nest arg is given a specially-reserved
register in the callling convention (at least on X86 and X86-64, I didn't check
the other backends) so it's not like the argument list actually has to be
rewritten by it. That means it should be able to just store some static code
and the pointers to the memory provided, right?

(At the very least, this should be more clearly documented in LangRef.html if
this was intentional; it does currently say "The func argument must hold a
function bitcast to an i8*.", but that could be interpreted to mean
"indirection" by way of function arguments, phi nodes, etc. is allowed)
