shorten_branches should work correctly--you shouldn't need to do
anything special. My only guess is that there is something wrong with
the way you are reordering the blocks. For example, perhaps you are
simply reordering the CFG without reordering the insn chain. Note
that shorten_branches is not (yet) CFG aware. It simply walks the
