[buddy] fix undefined behavior

The bug was found while running Spot's src/tgbatest/randpsl.test
on Debian i386 with gcc-4.9.2.  The following call would crash:

./ltl2tgba -R3 -t '(!(F(({{{(p0) |
{[*0]}}:{{{(p1)}[*2]}[:*]}[*]:[*2]}[:*0..3]}[]-> (G(F(p1)))) &
(G((!(p1)) | ((!(p2)) W (G(!(p0)))))))))'

On amd64 the call does not crash, but valgrind nonetheless
report that uninitialized memory is being read by bdd_gbc()
during the second garbage collect.

* src/kernel.h (PUSHREF): Define as a function rather than a macro
to avoid undefined behavior.  See comments for details.

** The following (original) definition of PUSHREF is incorrect
** when (a) can trigger a garbage collect:
** #define PUSHREF(a) *(bddrefstacktop++) = (a)
** The reason is that bddrefstacktop can be incremented before computing
** (a) and assigning its value to bddrefstacktop[-1]. So if the garbage
** collector is triggered during the computation of (a), it will find
** uninitialized values in the stack.
** Such a situation occur in most algorithms of the form:
** static int restrict_rec(int r) {
** // ...
** PUSHREF( restrict_rec(LOW(r)) );
** PUSHREF( restrict_rec(HIGH(r)) );
** res = bdd_makenode(LEVEL(r), READREF(2), READREF(1));
** POPREF(2);
** Using a function forces the value of a to be computed before pushing
** it to the stack.
