It does change the behaviour more than the patch above.

Code motion in loop optimizer, gcse, profiling and similar code emitting
to BB headers/footers and such.  You are quite right that once you
choose particular instruction in the middle of basic block to emit
something around, you usually want to have it associated with that
instruction in local optimizers.

The questional thing is what to do when instrucitons already have
locators set (ie you are doing code motion and such), but if it really
seems to be sane to just flip the API other way around, I can rename the
emit functions *_noloc and update the uses in CFG, loop and friends.
