It's a function descriptor, there is only one address field, I don't
think there is any ambiguïty here, and I prefer modifying the least
impacted architectures.

Changing addr to funcaddr in PARISC would result in the following
changes, on an architecture I know nothing about. It's more changes than
we have on powerpc.
