[erlang-patches] [erlang-bugs] Compiler crash with 'inline_list_funcs' and "fun Fun/Arity" notation

Thanks! Looks good. I have only two slight comments:

If find the first sentence in the commit message confusing:

"Local fun references look like plain old variables in the Core Erlang
AST and should not be treated as such."

I would suggest "but" instead of "and":

"Local fun references look like plain old variables in the Core Erlang
AST, but should not be treated as such."

The test cases tests that the compiler does not crash and that
the code can be loaded, but it does not test that the code actually
works. I suggest that you rewrite it to something like this:

?MODULE() ->
    F = fun bar/1,
    G = lists:last([(fun (X) when F =:= X -> X end)]),
    F = G(F),
    ok.

bar(X) ->
    X.
