The address format generated by combine is very unusual in
1. The placement of subreg in
(plus:DI (subreg:DI (mult:SI (reg/v:SI 85 [ i ])
(const_int 4 [0x4])) 0)
(subreg:DI (reg:SI 106) 0))
isn't supported by x86 backend.
2. The biggest problem is optimizing mask 0xffffffff to
0xfffffffc by keeping track of non-zero bits in registers.
X86 backend doesn't have such information to know
ADDR & 0xfffffffc == ADDR & 0xffffffff.
