It's fine with me if we don't say anything about x86-64 large code  
model. There was enough to get the JIT working on Mac. But I am  
relying on others to test / fix other platforms.  There are plenty  
left to do before we can claim true large code model support.

I don't have a freebsd box to test. Please reduce the test case to  
a .bc file and I'll be happy to look at it.
