Actually, this causes miscompilations with selective scheduler when
-fsel-sched-pipelining is enabled (as it is with -O3 on ia64).  The reason is,
with that flag we build custom regions that consist of a loop body and its
preheader in sel_find_rgns, which is called from sched_rgn_init.  We require
that sched_init is called afterwards, so that DF data is computed for any new
blocks that might have been created (i.e. preheaders); it's possible that DF
is not the only thing that forces this order.

Bernd, could you elaborate on the segfault you had seen?  Perhaps we could
offer some advice on fixing it then.

In the meanwhile, could you revert your patch?  I'm sorry to point out this
problem after the patch had been committed, but it's not immediately obvious :)
Andrey or I will add an explanatory comment in sel-sched afterwards.
