It's not quite fair to call PR 31130 a missed optimization regression.
The optimization is not missed.  It just doesn't happen in the VRP
pass itself.  And in particular the optimization is not missed with
regard to gcc 4.1, so even specific to VRP it is not a missed
optimization for 4.2.

I am of course continuing to look at PR 31130, but please don't permit
your personal dislike of -Wstrict-overflow color your description of
the issues.  A missed optimization regression is one that shows up in
the generated assembly code.
