The reason for get_range_info in the current form is that it is cheap, and
unless we want to make some SSA_NAMEs non-propagatable [*], IMHO it should
stay that way.  Now that we have ASAN_ internal calls, if you want to
optimize away ASAN_CHECK calls where VRP suggests that e.g. array
index will be within the right bounds and you'd optimize away ASAN_CHECK to
a VAR_DECL access if the index was constant (say minimum or maximum of the
range), you can do so in VRP and it is the right thing to do it there.

[*] - that is something I've been talking about for __builtin_unreachable ()
etc., whether it would be worth it if range_info of certain SSA_NAME that
would VRP want to remove again was significantly better than range info of
the base SSA_NAME, to keep that SSA_NAME around and e.g. block forwprop etc.
from propagating the SSA_NAME copy, unless something other than SSA_NAME has
been propagated into it.  Richard was against that though.
