We don't yet, see PR77823 - all I've managed to do before stage1 was over
was instrumentation of signed arithmetic integer overflow on vectors,
division, shift etc. are tasks maybe for this stage1.

That said, shift instrumentation in particular is done early because every
FE has different rules, and so if it is coming from target builtins that are
folded into something, it wouldn't be instrumented anyway.
