Example of simple code the reproduces issue

In developing for an extremely memory-constrained AARCH64 embedded environment,
I noticed a code size regression between versions 6 and 7.  Specifically, I see
the regression when performing accesses into global structures.  

Earlier versions (6 and older) would compile a single ADRP/ADD to the front of
the global struct at the beginning of a function.  Accesses into the structures
would then be LDR/STR with offsets to the original calculated address.

Later versions are doing ADRP/ADD (followed by STR/LDR) combos on every access
into the struct.  

The issue seems to come up in LLC.  The IR produced by versions 6/7/8 seem
fundamentally identical.  Furthermore, I can feed IR generated by llvm 6 into
LLC for versions 6, 7, and 8, and 7/8 produce the larger code.    In all cases
I am compiling with '-Oz'

I have a bit more info in this thread on the llvm mailing list.  I have also
attached a trivial example in which versions 7 and later will produce larger
code than versions 6 and older.
