I usually verify that by running the testcase in isolation on a GCC version
that should FAIL it and on one that should PASS it (tcl quoting is also
try-and-error for me most of the time...).

Thus I do

gcc/> make check-gcc RUNTESTFLAGS="tree-ssa.exp=match-2.c"
<test should FAIL>
<patch source tree>
gcc/> make cc1
... compiles cc1 ...
gcc/> make check-gcc RUNTESTFLAGS="tree-ssa.exp=match-2.c"
<test should PASS>

A more complete matching for an SSA name would be (allowing
for SSA name versions > 9) _\\d\+ with \\(D\\) appended if
suitable (that's usually known from the testcase).  \\d\+ should match
at least one decimal digit.
