The insns are deleted before expand dumps the insn chain; and the "we
expand this gimple to that RTL" part of the dump won't show it, either.

What I did before is complain when some code is inserted after a barrier
(i.e. without a label first).  That is pretty messy in itself, and there
really is no good place to dump it to dump file either.  (And avoiding
printing stuff for the harmless very common case where the function
return val reg is moved to a pseudo and then back again does is another
complication).

But that is a good idea: don't print where the insns are inserted, but
instead where they are deleted.  I'll try that.
