[PATCH] Fix wrong code on aarch64 due to paradoxical subreg


As described in PR 71779 and PR 70903 we have a wrong code issue on aarch64
which is triggered by a paradoxical subreg that can be created in
store_bit_field_using_insv when the target has an EP_insv bitfield instruction.

The attached patch changes this insn...

(insn 1047 1046 1048 (set (reg:DI 481)
        (subreg:DI (reg/f:SI 479) 0)) y.c:12702 -1

... into a more simple insn:

(insn 1047 1046 1048 (set (reg:DI 479)
        (zero_extend:DI (reg:SI 480))) isl_input.c:2496 -1

which manages to fix two bugs at the same time.

The patch does not include a test case, as I was looking at the PR 71779
just by curiosity, and I have only a theoretical interest in aarch64. However,
it should be easy to extract one from PR 70903 at least, but I can't do that by

Therefore I would like to leave the test case(s) to Cristina Tamar from ARM,
and/or Andreas Schwab, who have also helped out with bootstrapping and
reg-testing on aarch64 and aarch64-ilp32.

Bootstrap and reg-test on x86_64-linux-gnu with no regressions.
Successfully bootstrapped on aarch64_ilp32 and the ISL testsuite passes.
Also successfully bootstrapped on an aarch64 juno board and no regressions.

Is it OK for trunk?
