[PATCH] do not lower a/b to a*(1/b)

This patch removes the hunk of expr.c that tries to lower a/b to a*(1/b) in the hope of CSEing the reciprocal and save a divide. This optimization is now part of loop-invariant motion thanks to a patch by David Edelsohn.

Bootstrapped/regtested powerpc-apple-darwin, ok for mainline?

	* expr.c (expand_expr_real_1) <case RDIV_EXPR>: Never emit as a*(1/b).
