After thinking about this a bit, I don't really agree with the last
one: the compiler could indeed stop tracking 'vector', but not
XVECTOR (vector)->contents, and we are interested in the latter.

One other thought is that, if worse comes to worst, we may consider
disallowing redefinition of a function that is currently being
executed (in another thread).

However, I'm still not convinced we are there.  Can we establish which
element(s) of the bytecode vector are GC'ed in this scenario?
