If that is true, then why are there so many post var-tracking passes
using NONDEBUG_INSN_P and/or looking for the DEBUG_INSN code? See e.g.
shorten_branches, reorg.c, various machine reorgs, etc.

For example from reorg.c:redundant_insn() in the loop "/* Scan
backwards looking for a match.  */":

151731      nemet       if (!NONDEBUG_INSN_P (trial))
    99     kenner       continue;
151731      nemet       --insns_to_search;

This was introduced to fix PR41349. Apparently DEBUG_INSN live on
beyond var-tracking...?
