PR tree-optimization/58143
PR tree-optimization/58227
Prevent lim from moving conditional expressions
if that could trigger undefined behavior.
* gimple.h (gimple_could_trap_p_2): New function.
* gimple.c (gimple_could_trap_p_2): New function.
(gimple_could_trap_p_1): Call gimple_could_trap_p_2.
* tree-ssa-loop-im.c (movement_possibility): Likewise.

Please fold the overall comment into the movement_possibility changelog.

Can you instead of introducing gimple_could_trap_p_2 simply change the
signature and name of gimple_could_trap_p_1 please?  It is only called
three times.
A proper name could be gimple_could_trap_or_invoke_undefined_p.

That you need to change the two testcases makes me nervous (also please
use -fwrapv, not -fno-strict-overflow) - did you check what happens for them?
