(eq #'eq #'eq)

    If you really wanted functions to be EQ to themselves in all
    "reasonable" cases, even autoloading need not interfere.  Th
    autoload definition could be newly CONSed for each function, and
    when the real definition is actually loaded it should not be stored
    normally, but stuffed inside the original autoload function, presumably
    linked with a BRANCH instruction.  This would add one short instruction
    of overhead, and make inspection/disassembly/debugging harder, but
    at least it shows that the physical address of a function does not
    have to change because of autoloading.
