Re: [patch] tree-phinodes.c: Make make_phi_node static.

I actually added a call to make_phi_node in my patch to tree-vectorizer.c - We're creating new
phis (in a new basic block) that correspond to phis in another basic block
and we want these phis to be in the same order because in some cases we
need to redefine the arguments of the new phis (this happens soon after
they are created). The code to do that becomes very compact and efficient
if we know that the phis are arranged this way. create_phi_node however
adds new phis in a reversed order, so I added an internal version of
create_phi_node in the vectorizer ("slpeel_create_phi_node") that adds the
phis in a "straight" order (and calls make_phi_node to do that). I'd have
to move this function to tree-phinodes.c if make_phi_node was made static.
I don't know if that's desirable?

Attached is a patch to make make_phi_node static as it is called only
from tree-phinodes.c.

I don't think it is a good idea to expose this low-level function as
an extern function.  Currently, a PHI node chain is maintained in
tree-phinodes.c.  We don't want other modules to modify a PHI node

Bootstrapped on i686-pc-linux-gnu.  OK to apply?
