I duno, but as store motion is exciting thing, can you please send me the
patch you use and tell me what exactly fail so I can try to investigate it?

I would love to see that beast working, so we will be able to kill
mem hoisting in loop optimizer for instance.  It is the important
amount of loop.c code and I would love to see the code motion in loop.c
dead, as it de-facto isn't doing anything more than gcse/pre/load/store motion

I will try to take a look if I can come with something more specific.
