New issue 2281: 'exctrans' branch makes the C sources bigger

Armin Rigo:

The .c files are generated with a ton of "struct pypy_header0" prebuilt constants nowadays, which are never referenced.  According to hg bisect, it was added by the branch 'exctrans'.  Ronan, could you look at it?  It shouldn't have an effect in the final pypy-c as the linker should be able to remove all these 200'000+ structures, but it has probably a non-negligible translation-time overhead.
