Invalid code generated with array typedef #1984

The following generates invalid C code with Cython 0.27.2:

ctypedef int int_arr[100]

cdef class X:
    cdef int_arr arr
    cdef foo(self):
        cdef int* ptr = self.arr

The assignment ptr = self.arr is compiled with an extra temporary (why?) of type int_arr which is not legal. The relevant part of the generated C code:

static PyObject *__pyx_f_6cytest_1X_foo(struct __pyx_obj_6cytest_X *__pyx_v_self) {
  int *__pyx_v_ptr;
  __pyx_t_6cytest_int_arr __pyx_t_1;

  __pyx_t_1 = __pyx_v_self->arr;
  __pyx_v_ptr = __pyx_t_1;

Interestingly, with an explicit cast cdef int* ptr = <int*>self.arr, no temporary is used:

__pyx_v_ptr = ((int *)__pyx_v_self->arr);
