This looks to me like ressurected
thread which was exactly about this.

I'm using following patch for this in gcc-2.96-RH (which Richard Kenner did
not like but it certainly is less invasive change then ignoring
RTX_UNCHANGING_P with sibling call optimization). IMHO clearing
RTX_UNCHANGING_P is a safe thing to do even if it cleared some innocent
variable's (which would be sharing the same stack slot) RTX_UNCHANGING_P
flag as opposed to setting it.
