It looks good.  Some questions before adding it:

     1. Please factor out the loop that goes through the edge lists, so
        that the main iteration loop in tree_ssa_ccp() calls
        process_edge_list (ssa_edges) and process_edge_list
        (varying_ssa_edges).
     2. Is Kenneth's copyright assignment already on file?
     3. Could you add a small example that illustrates how the new list
        speeds up the demotion to VARYING?
     4. Any timings worth mentioning?


Thanks.  Diego.
