Would it make sense to just use trees for the min and max?
It looks from a quick grep like set_range_info is called with trees or
range_info_def fields for all cases except anti-ranges.  Maybe for those
we could steal a bit from somewhere in the SSA_NAME structure?  From the
comments it looks like static_flag might be free.

Of course, that means polluting a different cache line when switching to
and from anti ranges, but I'd hope that's still cheaper than adding when
writing anti-ranges and subtracting when reading.
