NAK. This is how it used to be, and we changed it in order to prevent
gcc from making incorrect assumptions. If you use the form with the
explicit addition, and x is the address of an array, gcc will assume
that the result is within the bounds of the array (apparently the C
standard says it can do that) and potentially generate incorrect
code. I recall that we had an actual case where gcc was generating
incorrect code, though I don't recall the details, as this was some
time before 2002.

Paul.
