Re: Fill more delay slots in conditional returns

for a private port with conditional returns and delay slots, only the simple
algorithm (fill_simple_delay_slots) is able to fill the slots.  It's because
get_branch_condition just punts on conditional returns.

Fixed thusly.  While I investigated this, I realized that the block of code in
fill_simple_delay_slots between line 2097 and line 2274 is dead for JUMP insns
(and has been so for a long time, which is consistent with various comments in
the code, for example the head comment of fill_eager_delay_slots) so the patch
also cleans it up (modulo the formatting to make the patch readable).

Jeff, any objections?  Tested on SPARC/Solaris, no difference in the generated
code at -O2 for the gcc.c-torture/compile testsuite.

I'm not sure what this is supposed to do. How is pat == target ever going to be true when ANY_RETURN_P (pat) is true? Isn't target supposed to be a CODE_LABEL or NULL? What am I missing?

What does the RTL for your conditional return look like

(if_then_else (cond) (pc) (return))

Where the (pc) and (return) can be reversed as well? That's what the later hunks in get_branch_condition seem to imply.

Maybe if I saw the RTL that first hunk would make sense. It feels like I'm missing something.

The cleanup stuff is OK, check that in whenver you'd like.
