[patch] compile: Fix function pointers


originally posted in the same form as:
	[patch 15/14] GDB/GCC compile function pointers [Re: [PATCH v4 00/14] let gdb reuse gcc's C compiler]
	Message-ID: <>

TBH while I always comment reasons for each of the compilation options in
reality I tried them all and chose that combination that needs the most simple
compile/compile-object-load.c ( emulation) implementation.

So this is a formal request for review/approval as the main patchset is now
checked in.

	* compile/compile.c (_initialize_compile): Use -fPIE for compile_args.

	* gdb.compile/compile.exp (pointer to jit function): New test.
