Yes, at first sight, however, I was involved at PR 58970,
and I proposed a similar patch, which was objected by Jakub:
see comment #25 of PR 58970:
"Jakub Jelinek 2013-11-05 19:41:12 UTC
(In reply to Bernd Edlinger from comment #24)
> Created attachment 31169 [details] https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=31169

I disagree that it is better, you are forgetting get_inner_reference has other > 20 callers outside of expansion and there is no reason why negative bitpos would be a problem in those cases."
So that is what Jakub said at that time, and with the
suggested change in get_inner_reference,
this part of the r204444 change would be effectively become superfluous:
@@ -4721,6 +4721,15 @@ expand_assignment (tree to, tree from, bool nontem

&unsignedp, &volatilep, true);

&& DECL_BIT_FIELD_TYPE (TREE_OPERAND (to, 1)))
get_bit_range (&bitregion_start, &bitregion_end, to, &bitpos, &offset);
and should be reverted. I did not really like it then, but I'd respect Jakub's advice.
