I did not manage to find time for more testing. The fact that I never ran the
FPC test suite doesn't help, but it may work from the first attempt.
Any way, as PIC code never worked before in FPC, maybe we should upload to
testing and see if any issue is reported.
By the way, this fix opens the door to ship the FPC RTL as a shared object and
start using it. This of course requires a huge rework for our packaging, but I
think is a worth the pain goal. What do you think?
