I got it already.  Thanks.
I was putting an mixture of both changelog entries to the search, that
caused it to fail.

Can it get wrong in conservative way?
For example if it is uninitilalized (0), it can just alias everything.

Hmm, I will need to figure out how those alias sets works exactly finally.

I've done simple test:
long long *a;
short *b;
  *a = 1;
  *b = 2;
  return *a;

I would expect gcc to be able to get the idea that *b=2 can not change a nor *a,
but it don't get any of these strict-aliasing or not. Hmm 2.95 neighter, but
it is somewhat strange. All alias sets appears to be 0.

What I am missing?

Thanks for reply,
