Looks like we mutually convinced each other ;)
OK, to defend your original position, all the other code paths (except
for the malloc stuff included in this patch) leads to
has_proper_scope_for_analysis and that one does:
  /* Do not care about a local automatic that is not static.  */
    if (!TREE_STATIC (t) && !DECL_EXTERNAL (t)) 
So I guess the later patch is sufficient and since it lets me progress,
I will commit it today (assuming my last testing of IPA-SSA converge)
and we can worry about the local casts incrementally.
