        * tree-ssa-dom.c (associative_fp_binop): New function.
        (simplify_rhs_and_lookup_avail_expr): Disallow associativity
        and constant folding of floating point MULT_EXPR/PLUS_EXPR

+   enum tree_code code = TREE_CODE (exp);
+   return !(!flag_unsafe_math_optimizations

This flag is not clearly the right one. Why did you pick it from the alternatives?

Why is this not right flag, it is used other places which we do the same thing.

+            && (code == MULT_EXPR || code == PLUS_EXPR)
+            && FLOAT_TYPE_P (TREE_TYPE (exp)));

This function appears to disallow folding

(x * 2.0) * 2.0


x * 4.0

which seems to me to be valid.

Also this is a valid transformation only if the constants will generate a power of 2.
