It's a function descriptor, there is only one address field, I don't 
think there is any ambiguïty here, and I prefer modifying the least 
impacted architectures.

Changing addr to funcaddr in PARISC would result in the following 
changes, on an architecture I know nothing about. It's more changes than 
we have on powerpc.
