Well, const functions cannot access global memory, they can only inspect
their arguments.

Of course __builtin_prefetch seems to be special in some way.  Note that
users can explicitely call it, so setting the attribute from the prefetching
pass isn't the correct thing to do.

Note that __builtin_prefetch has the 'no vops' attribute - I think you should
simply consider all 'no vops' builtins as transaction pure instead or
consider a set of builtins as transaction pure (that's more scalable than
sticking the attribute onto random builtins - see how we handle builtins in
the alias machinery, we avoid sticking the fnspec attribute onto each
builtin but simply have special handling for them).
