Without this patch, ifcvt extends lifetime of %eax hard register,
which causes reload/LRA ICE later on. Combiner and other passes try hard
not to do that, even ifcvt has code for it if x is a hard register a few
lines below it, but in this case the hard register is SET_SRC (set_b).
With this patch we just use the pseudo (x) which has been initialized
from the hard register before the conditional.
Bootstrapped/regtested on x86_64-linux and i686-linux, ok for trunk?

* ifcvt.c (noce_process_if_block): Before reload if else_bb
is NULL, avoid extending lifetimes of hard registers in
likely to spilled or small register classes.
