Test provoking the bug

The JIT uses stubs for a couple purposes: retargeting dlsym-found external
functions, lazily compiling internal functions, and on x86-64 calling functions
defined more than 32 bits away from the call site. For at least far calls, that
stub should only be used for calls, and not for other uses of the address.

The attached patch demonstrates that external functions when lazy compilation
is turned on copy the stub's address into a return value, and when PR5116 is
fixed a similar test will show that simple far calls use the stub's address

Unladen Swallow ran into this because we're trying to use "%1 = load fptr; cmp
%1, @global" to guard inlined calls to @global, but %1 can't possibly match a
