Thank you for trying out! The changes od make sense to me, do you think,
you can get them merged to mainline, please?

I was looking into the PPC failures and the splitting infrastructure is
major offender here.  The hand written expanders are used in the
splitters to and they don't care about duplicating operands.  I am
thinking about simply fixing it by adding code to unshare RTL after
splitting as it seems bit too painful to deal with it by updating all
the backends.
I hope to have it implemented this weekend and do little performance
testing.  We are definitly very inconsistent here allowing random
sharing during RTL expansion, prohibiting random sharing in splitting,
later expansion, peepholing and such.  I am not quite sure what is the
best strategy here...
