Read the comment in the diff for all the details.

I found this while working on my current patch, adding some assertion at the
end of the function would create a new build error and moving it around in the
function would stop showing the error.

I discussed this with Collin and Jeff and it appears that the compiler
changes it's inlining decisions based on very picky details. In this particular
case, inlining the function resulted in an error.

Tested with bootstrap build and pph regression testing.

	* gcc/cp/pph-streamer-in.c (pph_start_record):
	Initialize cache_ix in all paths.
