Yes, we'd have to either fix them all up or compute that bit automagically
(like we do for the has_volatile_ops flag).  I assume that you _can_ determine
if a stmt is part of a transaction (it may just not be a O(1) operation)?  Thus,
a bit crude way would be to have the gimple flag but have it to-be computed
on-demand.  And you'd compute it before critical passes such as LIM and PRE.

That would sound easier than maintaining the flag on the stmt.  OTOH we
already maintain on-the-side EH tables, so it can't be that big of a problem.

What do we do if we move stmts inside a transaction though?  Do they
magically become part of it and thus we cannot move them out again?

If you want to fix this issue for 4.7, add the gimple flag and an on-demand
compute helper and check the flag in PRE/LIM.
