I don't hesitate to admit a deep lack of understanding about the internals of gcc. On the other hand, I do understand roughly the goals of "canonicalize address computations" and "choose the best addressing mode based on some cost", and that was why after some thought I added back precisely these two functions.

So, are there other places in the compiler that "canonicalize address computations" and/or "choose the best addressing mode based on some cost"?

isn't going to get us anywhere closer to simplifying

There was a reason to remove them: fwprop should do the same
transformations already.

Good, there's a clear statement: Are you saying that fwprop should perform what canon_for_address and find_best_addr were doing in the old CSE?
