#1439 Bad code when casting from code to generic ptr in 2.8.0 RC1


SDCC 2.8.0 RC1 #5082 (also #5108) generates incorrect code, was OK in 2.7.4 #4972. Third byte of generic pointer is set incorrectly (0 - XDATA) or not set at all (f2() call). There are other places in my sources where it is copied from B register that is not set before. This bug may be related to
#1839277: Implicit typecast from code to generic pointer is wrong

void f1(char c, const void * p);
void f2(const void * p);
void g(void)
f1(5, (code void *)0x1234);
f2((code void *)0x1234);

mov _f1_PARM_2,#0x34
mov (_f1_PARM_2 + 1),#0x12
mov (_f1_PARM_2 + 2),#0x00
mov dpl,#0x05
lcall _f1
mov dptr,#0x1234
ljmp _f2

    This bug was introduced in svn revision #5009 as side effect of fixing bug #1281583: code pointer array referencing

    Maarten, can you take a look ASAP?

    I confirm: every place affected by this bug in my code is now (RC2 - #5117) compiled properly: same result as with #4972.
