However, we should *never* be calling add_stmt_operand with a
BIT_FIELD_REF.  BIT_FIELD_REFs are different from ARRAY_REFs and
COMPONENT_REFs in that respect.  Arrays and structures are always
virtual operands.  OTOH, operands to BIT_FIELD_REFs may or may not be
virtual.

Handling them together inside get_expr_operands was a mistake, after
all.  Sorry I didn't notice that before.  Notice how the handler for
ARRAY_REF/COMPONENT_REF calls add_stmt_operand directly, but the
original handler for BIT_FIELD_REF recurses into TREE_OPERAND(t,0). 
That's why you were running into the verifier ICE.

In fact, we don't even need to handle BIT_FIELD_REFs in
get_virtual_var.  It's only called from add_stmt_operand, which should
never be receiving a BIT_FIELD_REF.  Another #if defined ENABLE_CHECKING
candidate.


Diego.
