Re: new __builtin_choose_type (patch) (new builtin_equal_types patch)


    In a frontend, we never play with modes...  The type can be found in
    TREE_TYPE, and you should just use it.  This is frontend code.

Mostly, but not totally, true.  When stripping NOPs to look for
things, it's not uncommon for frontends to only strip NOPs that don't
change the mode.
