Me too. For start I would loke to kill the automatical removing, that may not
bring too much troubles and LABEL_NUSES next.
I am affraid of barriers especially.

Yes. Post-bb-reorder at the moment.
I would like to implement the better BB-reordering algorithm then, as
decent implementation is reported to more than change the benefits of
For for that I need the counts and frequencies, for that I need CFG survive
from flow1 pass, for that I need fix reload and post-reload splitting, that may
get tricky, as we may introduce new jump insns. So I don't want to run into
too much details at this moment. Death of jump2 pass is my goal at the moment.
BTW currently I didn't measured any noticeable slowdown. Trick is that
bb-reorder does good job on avoiding branches on critical path. Actually it
brings speedups, as code size decreases over original implementation.

Even -Os overactive crossjumping is sometimes loss.
