And note that revering the patch will introduce new minor
missed-optimization regressions.

I've focused on the Ada regressions as they have caused compile-time
hangs and incorrect code generation.  I've worked on the tree-ssa
missed optimizations anytime I haven't been working on an Ada

Reverting the patch is just a (*&@#$ waste of time at this point.
Really, it's a waste of time/energy, much like this conversation.

I'm working diligently to address the issues and I'm confident they
will be resolved.  Has it taken longer than I'd like.  No doubt, but
that's no surprise as the VRP improvements have uncovered at least
a dozen distinct latent bugs.

Please, let's focus on fixing the problems rather than reverting
patches.  If the tree-ssa.exp failures are bugging you that freaking
much, then xfail them like I've suggested.  They're just missed
optimizations and I'm actively investigating a good fix rather than
bandaid solutions.
