Patch withdrawn. David Blaikie correctly points out that the
address expression ODR-uses the thing pointed to, and the context
does not fall into either exception to the rule.

> PR19341 shows that if a template parameter is a pointer to something

> defined, and also isn't used within the body of the template, then the
> generated code will not emit any reference to the thing but the debug

> This patch doesn't describe the location unless the template parameter

> The patch looks bigger than it really is because a chunk of code now

> For the test, I had to add uses of some existing template parameters

> template to show that without any uses there won't be a location.
