OK, I can simply re-test the patch with pass scheduled before
out-of-ssa. (I use it that way on pretty-ipa, so I know it works).

Reason why I moved it past out-of-ssa on mainline is the fact that I
will soon want to add code that merge EH regions that turns out to have
same labels.  For this I need no unnecesary forwarder blocks and
scheduling pass later reduces dependencies in between patches I want to

On pretty-ipa I get rid of those forwarders via merge_phi improvement +
extra merge_phi pass, but on mainline we don't have these.  If this
looks like plan to you, lets just move the pass?
