Better to look at actual code generation results IMO. Do you have an
opinion on the examples I included with the patch?
Well, one of the limitations of this analysis is that it is static - it
doesn't say what the run-time influence of the simplification is.
In case it is inside a heavily used loop, it might be far more important
