Obviously you need to keep the functions in libgcc in any event for the
sake of old object code (just as we keep __eprintf there), even if you
make GCC generate inline code rather than libcalls or remove the option
You also need to deal with fold, which will optimize away potentially
trapping computations with -ftrapv and runs before gimplification
(possibly in association with making fold run at gimplification time and
