Not removing yet, but making tree-ssa independent on it.
Removing it completely is next step.

This is also not valid.
Other inline copy of function may take variable's address and store it
somewhere, so function called from current function may use this address
to modify the variable, so we can not promote it to not alias global
memory.  It can.

I can construct one.  I need inline function of something like

fun (int a)
static int var;
 if (a==0)
  global_pointer = &var;
  {var = 0; t(); return var;}
*gliobal_pointer = 1;

and now produce one inline copy with fun(0) and other with fun(1) and
other in different function with fun(0). 
You can not mark var as not global clobbered in the other copy.

Thanks!  I will wait for Richard's response concerning nested NOPs
before commiting.
