My mistake here.  Going forward I'll make sure to port essential r300g
changes to r300c.

It would be nice to be able to drop r300c.  Who is still using it and for
what purpose?  If current users don't care about new compiler improvements
maybe we can place a fairly stable version of the compiler(7.10?)
in r300c and move the current compiler code into r300g.
