this seems to be the problem -- it obviously should not be

Now this certainly is not the proper way to fix the problem -- why
should expand_simple_operations care?

No, this certainly is not OK; it is a different, possibly more
expensive addressing mode.  Of course, in this case it will be fixed
by constant propagation on rtl, but what if such an addressing
mode does not exist -- i.e., what if there is reg + symbol(i.e., constant)
addressing mode, but not reg + reg addressing mode?

Could you please revert this "fix", at least until we agree that there
is no other cleaner way how to fix the problem?  Thanks,
