Right.  It would be good if you could find out for what targets it matters.
The thing is, if a target expects only the patterns as combine used to make
them, it will regress (as you've seen on aarch64); but it will regress
_silently_.  Which isn't so nice.

Seeing for what targets / patterns it makes a difference would tell us the
answer to that, too :-)

I'll run some tests with and without your patch.
