Proposed patch to address this issue.

Per the FIXME comment in gcc/config/arm/arm.c of LLVM-GCC 4.0, the
arm_struct_value_rtx function lies about whether structs are passed in a hidden
first parameter. This confuses gcc/objc/objc_act.c, which takes this result to
mean that Objective-C method calls do not need to be specially wrapped up in
objc_msgSend_stret. This causes crashes whenever struct-returning Objective-C
methods are called on arm-apple-darwin. The attached patch corrects this by
adding a new subtarget-specific define, BROKEN_STRUCT_VALUE_RTX, which simply
causes the Objective-C component of LLVM-GCC to assume that structures are
returned in a hidden first parameter, regardless of what the target backend's
struct_value_rtx() function tells it.
