Btw, we have this kind of mess pre-existing with stuff like flag_wrapv
and flag_trapv, adding a new case should be a 100% no-go.  If you
really need to have this conditional per call then add a flag on
CALL_EXPR and GIMPLE_CALL saying this call has bound arguments
and return value.  And append the bound arguments at the end.
