RFC: Remove flags -fmove-all-movables and -freduce-all-givs.


L.S.,

The flags mentioned in the subject were introduced seven years ago to help the heuristics in loop.c in case of code commonly encountered in Fortran.

Because loop.c is on its way out and current loop optimizations have a different structure, there's little reason to keep these flags.

On the contrary, now that we have decided that 4.0.0 is a nice round version number, perhaps we can get away with such a change.

The proposed patch is attached.

Please, reflect.

- Forces all invariant computations in loops to be moved

- @opindex freduce-all-givs
- Forces all general-induction variables in loops to be

  These options may generate better or worse code; results are highly
  dependent on the structure of loops within the source code.
