[llvm-dev] Specify address of extern variable in llvm bitcode

Don't think so. But you could skip using a variable entirely if you know
it's at a constant address, instead of needing a symbol lookup.

You could skip it by taking the pointer constant as an integer constant and
int2ptr casting it to a pointer, then loading from that - not using a
global variable (decl or def) instead.

But probably using a symbol is better/more flexible.
