Steve hit a case where running vartracking before dbr_schedule caused a
bootstrap failure on MIPS.  On targets without delay slots, that kind of
bug has been fixed by:

/* Variable tracking should be run after all optimizations which
   change order of insns.  It also needs a valid CFG.  */

But obviously we can't do that with dbr_schedule, since it changes
the order of insns but runs with the CFG pulled down.

In the long term it would be good to replace dbr_schedule altogether,
but in the medium term I thought we might want to update it so that
it can run before vartracking.
