many fingers have touched and changed the meaning of some of these

this code looks different than I remember. It look sto me like the
processed bitmap now reflects the necessary attribute as well.
especially from the comment its implied too:

/* Vector indicating an SSA name has already been processed and marked
as necessary.  */
static sbitmap processed;
