RE: ICE in gcc.dg/pr77834.c test for MIPS

> From: Segher Boessenkool

Yes, PR79150. I got carried away with the mailing and forgot about the PR, sorry.
I have updated the PR thread with all of the things we've discussed in this thread (and some more).
Let's continue this discussion over there.

Yes, everything is happening during expand. I tried to explain some of this in
my update to the PR thread.

This is a good point, but I don't know if it's the right solution.

It is emitted through emit_partition_copy in insert_partition_copy_on_edge
