It is already committed. If needed, this optimization could be guarded by
an extra flag passed to the function, I think both uses in
gfc_build_compare_string and the first use in gfc_trans_string_copy
definitely don't care about the trailing whitespace, the second case in
gfc_trans_string_copy shouldn't hit that (you can't assign into a string
literal). In gfc_conv_scalar_char_value I'm not 100% sure (but we certainly
should have testcases in the testsuite covering that if there are issues)...
