Our optimizers are supposed to be fast.
I have plans to lower address arithmetic, and then throw lowered address
arithmetic at at least 4 of them after loop is completely done.
Not that we should randomly be adding pass calls where we could just fix
optimizers, but, if they need to be run, they need to be run.
