It is a mistake in patch splitting.  It is removed from this patch.  Patch
attached is pushed in, with ChangeLog entry.

Subject: [PATCH] Remove parameter valaddr from la_val_print

Nowadays, we pass both val and return value of
value_contents_for_printing (val) to la_val_print.  The latter is
unnecessary.  This patch removes the second parameter of la_val_print,
and get valaddr in each language's implementation by calling
value_contents_for_printing.  Since value_contents_for_printing calls
value_fetch_lazy, I also make VAL non-const.

Note that
 - I don't clean up the valaddr usages in each language's routines,
 - I don't remove valaddr from apply_ext_lang_val_pretty_printer, and
   extension language ops apply_val_pretty_printer.

They can be done in followup patches.
