I'm not sure how we would go about making such a guarantee, but I've
tied every variable used to a register and addr is passed in a
register, so there is no stack usage, and every call in there only
operates on it's operands.

The calls to the inline cache helpers (for the PPC32 case) are all
constants, so I can't see a reasonable scenario where there would be a
function call and reordered to after the DR bit is turned off, but I
guess if we want to be paranoid, we could always add an mb() call
before the DR bit is manipulated to prevent the compiler from
reordering across the section where the data MMU is disabled.
