visitGetElementPtr in InstructionCombining.cpp gets rid of unnecessary pointer
casts in gep (cast X). However, this optimization may change the address space
of the result pointer type, and cause type mismatch. 

I attached a very simple test to reproduce this issue. Run:

opt -S -O3 gep.ll -o gep.opt.ll
opt -verify gep.opt.ll -disable-output

The verifier will complain about the type mismatch. 

I attached a patch that disables this optimization when the address space of
the source is different from that of the destination. If it looks good to you,
I'll send it to llvm-commits for review.
