[vta] retain debug insns "between" merged rtl blocks

When merging two rtl blocks A and B, if there's a note at the end of
A, it won't actually be part of A, but rather it will stand between A
and B, after the end of A, and it will be deleted in the process of
merging the blocks.

If debug insns were emitted in A after the note, then the note will be
part of block A, and the note would have been retained during merging.
This caused (harmless AFAICT) compare-debug regressions.

This patch arranges for debug insns at the end of the block to be
moved to the following block, so that notes before them can be deleted
as they would have been in the absence of the debug insns.

I'm installing the fix in the vta branch.

for  gcc/ChangeLog.vta
from  Alexandre Oliva  <>

	* cfgrtl.c (rtl_merge_blocks): Drop notes before debug insns at
	the end of the first block.
