Re: [PR58315] reset inlined debug vars at return-to point

Wait, I have to take that back and revisit the code I looked at.
var-tracking handles confluences differently between VTA-tracked and
old-style var-tracking vars, and I was probably confused by that: it
occurred to me this morning that confluence points of VTA-tracked
variables perform a set intersection, whereas old-style VTA performs set
union across locations at all incoming edges.  So, what I have concluded
should only apply to old-style var-tracking vars, or to VTA-tracked vars
in unrolled loops whose intermediate conditions were optimized out (so
that there isn't any confluence with incoming edges without bindings for
the var).

I'm afraid I'll have to look again and figure out what I got wrong.

Apologies for the noise.
