you mean the remove_insn call?  So it should call df_insn_info_delete instead?
It _does_ mark the block as dirtly later, if it is not a debug insn.

Your change changes behavior for df->changeable_flags &
DF_DEFER_INSN_RESCAN btw, so it needs someone DF aware to review
and that makes it stage1 material as well I think.

It's also odd how insn_info == NULL is handled here.
