It does, added a BUG() arbit, hits an abort()

FWIW newer ARC gcc actually implements the builtin so we get a trap 5 instruction 
now, vs., abort() calls before.

BTW I missed reading the hunk of your changelog where this addresses the long 
standing mystery with ARC builds and numerous -Wreturn-type warnings. I always 
wondered why they were not fixed upstream already, being too lazy to investigate 
myself, and turns out this was due to this BUG() thingy. phew !
