Patch for bug 7284

This patch fixes bug 7284, signed left-shift overflow being wrongly
treated as undefined in C90 (it being implementation-defined in C90
and maybe in C++ and only undefined in C99).  I didn't feel it
worthwhile to add a flag front ends can set to control when signed
left shift is defined (so the optimization can stay in C99 mode),
instead just disabling the transformation of signed left shift to
multiplication, but will add such a flag if requested.

(The other known C90 conformance issues are relevant to C99 as well,
although the details may differ in the two standards.)

Bootstrapped with no regressions on i686-pc-linux-gnu.  OK to commit?
