        # this is needed by test_guard_not_forced_fails, because it produces a
        # loop which reads the value of types.* in a variable, then a guard
        # fail and we switch to blackhole: the problem is that at this point
        # the blackhole interp has a real integer, but it needs to convert it
        # back to a lltype pointer (which is handled by ll2ctypes, deeply in
        # the logic). The workaround is to teach ll2ctypes in advance which
        # are the addresses of the various types.* structures.
        # Try to comment this code out and run the test to see how it fails :)
