Hmm.  But we'd have such if(0|1) only in the short period between
the pass changing it to that and the next cleanup_cfg run, which would
ideally be right after that pass.  Alternatively passes could leave
the CFG not updated (thus, keep dead edges) but update the conditional
jump instructions only.

That said, currently I'm following the idea of fixing up all places
that pop up ...
