This line of code causes gcc for the AVR target to loop 
for a while and eventually crash after exhausting virtual memory.

   char x[] = { [0xFFFFFF] = 2 };
output_pending_init_elements in gcc/c/c-typeck.c ends up in an
infinite loop if elt->purpose is a tree representing an integer
constant equal to max value of TREE_TYPE(constructor_unfilled_index).
For the AVR, that's 0xFFFFFF (PSI mode). 

This happens because output_init_element, in addition to recording
the initialization in a collection, logically increments
constructor_unfilled_index (by generating a size_binop_loc with a
PLUS_EXPR and a int const node representing the number 1, followed by
a fold and a forcefit to the type). This obviously causes a overflow 
if the tree passed in represents an integer constant that's already at 
the max limit.
This is not handled in the body of the while (elt) loop, and
constructor_unfilled_index keeps alternating between trees
representing 0 and 0xFFFFFF (max value), eventually running out of 
memory and crashing.
I tried to reproduce the problem for x86_64, but I get an ICE even
before output_pending_init_elements is called, apparently because
of PR 57821.
The below patch fixes the code to not consider an overflowed 
constructor_unfilled_index to be less than elt->purpose.
Is this ok?

This patch needs to add include a testcase to the testsuite that fails 
before and passes after the patch.  (I realise such a test may only be 
able to run for a subset of targets.)
