Test program with an indirect call that causes the bug

LLC (version 3.3svn, i686-pc-win32) with NVPTX back-end crashes when compiling
an LLVM program containing indirect calls.

>From the error message (see attached example) it seems that the back-end does
not know how to handle function pointers (despite the fact that the CUDA
compiler, NVCC supports them). The example compiles correctly with the x86
back-end, but not when targeting NVPTX.

According to the NVVM specification (see
http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/nvvm-ir-spec/index.html), function pointers are
qualified by address space code addrspace(0) (=default), so not specifying an
address space should be fine. I tried to attach "callalign-metadata" to the
call, as described in the specification, but it did not make any difference.
