Those test cases were intended for -O0, if you build them with
optimization, it'll see through the artifical nature of the test.

I agree, but I'm getting really bad code even with -O3 in somewhat
more realistic tests, like the one appended below.

This results in 

        brasl   %r14,alloc
        llgc    %r4,0(%r2)
        llgc    %r14,1(%r2)
        sllg    %r5,%r4,24
        llgc    %r0,2(%r2)
        sllg    %r3,%r14,16
        ogr     %r3,%r5
        sllg    %r1,%r0,8
        ogr     %r1,%r3
        llgc    %r2,3(%r2)
        ogr     %r2,%r1
        brasl   %r14,verify

instead of

        brasl   %r14,alloc
        l       %r2,0(%r2)
        brasl   %r14,verify

or even

        brasl   %r14,alloc
        llfg    %r2,0(%r2)
        brasl   %r14,verify
