What steps will reproduce the problem?
Run Simply run on the site: http://play.golang.org/p/pz_E3cQ0_j

What is the expected output?
An encoded slice of nil values.

What do you see instead?
A panic :P

Which compiler are you using (5g, 6g, 8g, gccgo)?
Doesn't matter, crashes everywhere (see play link).

Please provide any additional information below.

If I encode a nil *big.Int, it works.
If I encode a slice of *string-s, each nil, it works.
If I encode a slice of *big.Int-s, each nil, it panics.
