xml_from_edocs.escript HiPE segfault in R14B dev branch

FYI,

When building erlang with HiPE enabled and native-libs in the current
dev tree you might encounter a segfault with xml_from_edocs.escript.
This will usually happen if you call 'make docs'.

Rickard and OTP team has git bisected the issue to the following first
bad commit which exposes a possible bug in HiPE:
a8b8ec5e858da86531933b545f752f436e411b58
Load native code for modules loaded before the code server

This commit is only bad because it exposed the bug by causing more
native compiled code to be executed than before.

The HiPE team is informed and will hopefully fix it before R14B.

If you happen to experience the issue just make sure to build the docs
with a non-hipe beam.
