Quite surprising, there is only one new failure after moving loop
transforms (only along with pass_web).  Yes, it is GCC7 change, will
revisit this to see if it makes substantial code generation
difference.  Anyway, for the bug itself, there might be simple fix in
x86 backend according to newest update.
