I haven't looked, but for the testcase in question I would have expected
all the jumps to have been fully threaded before we dropped down to RTL.

delete_unreachable_blocks is an interesting little problem.

There's some micro-optimization that can be done which I know produces
better code on x86 and probably every architecture on the planet.
However, those micro-optimizations are really just papering over
optimizer lameness (particularly alias analysis).  So I'm quite
hesitant to start micro-optimizing that routine.

I don't really see much else that can/should be done for that routine
that would help pr15524 except reducing the number of useless calls.
