New strict-aliasing warning?

When compiling trunk using gcc 4.1.2 on linux/ppc64, I now see a warning
that I don't remember seeing previously:

llvm[2]: Compiling InlineSpiller.cpp for Release+Asserts build
/src/llvm-trunk-dev/include/llvm/ADT/PointerIntPair.h: In member
function ‘const PointerTy* llvm::PointerIntPair<PointerTy, IntBits,
IntType, PtrTraits>::getAddrOfPointer() const [with PointerTy = void*,
unsigned int IntBits = 1u, IntType = bool, PtrTraits =
llvm::PointerUnionUIntTraits<llvm::VNInfo*,
llvm::SmallVector<llvm::VNInfo*, 4u>*>]’:
/src/llvm-trunk-dev/include/llvm/ADT/PointerUnion.h:153: instantiated
from ‘const PT1* llvm::PointerUnion<PT1, PT2>::getAddrOf() const [with T

llvm::SmallVector<llvm::VNInfo*, 4u>*]’
/src/llvm-trunk-dev/include/llvm/ADT/TinyPtrVector.h:63: instantiated
from ‘const EltTy* llvm::TinyPtrVector<EltTy>::begin() const [with EltTy

/src/llvm-trunk-dev/lib/CodeGen/InlineSpiller.cpp:382: instantiated
from here
/src/llvm-trunk-dev/include/llvm/ADT/PointerIntPair.h:98: warning:
dereferencing type-punned pointer will break strict-aliasing rules

I think that this might be indicating some kind of problem because I am
also currently seeing a crash in InlineSpiller on linux/ppc64. I am not
yet sure if the crash and this warning are related. Does anyone know why
this warning has appeared?

Thanks again,

clang/Makefile has:
# Disable -fstrict-aliasing. Darwin disables it by default (and LLVM
doesn't
# work with it enabled with GCC), Clang/llvm-gcc don't support it yet,
and newer
# GCC's have false positive warnings with it on Linux (which prove a
pain to
# fix). For example:
# http://gcc.gnu.org/PR41874
# http://gcc.gnu.org/PR41838
