The patch is in gcc-3.3.0.  See Richard Henderson's 2003-04-26 ia64
change in gcc.  However, that patch resulted in an ICE in some other
cases, and unnecessary saves/restores of ar.pfs, see gcc PR 10681.  The
patch for that is in gcc-3.3.1.  See Richard Henderson's 2003-06-26
change in gcc.

It would be reasonable to just check for >= gcc-3.3 for use of this
feature.  I wouldn't recommend using gcc-3.3.0 though.
