OK, so that went a lot smoother than I expected...

Bootstrapped and tested on i686, ia64, x86_64, ppc64, and ppc.  There
are no new regressions, of course.

Benchmark results are not all in yet, but for AMD64 I have SPECint and
SPECfp numbers, at -O2.  Here is a summary of the results:

- Not one binary was bigger, and a few were smaller with the patch.
  Overall the binaries are ~0.5% smaller.
- Compile time was 2s faster on 194 seconds for the unpatched compiler.
  Let's call it compile time neutral.
- For SPECint there is a 5% win for twolf, all other benchmarks are
  within 0.5%.
- For SPECfp there is a 30% improvement for mgrid (!), and 6% for mesa.
  The rest is in the noise (within 0.4%).

Good enough?
