yes. The patch originates from my original patchset I believe and it is
what ICF does.

Indeed this can be handled as part of COMPONENT_REF match.
Access path oracle here basically checks:
 1) that MEM_REF type matches (we want predicate for this)
 2) if it finds type match via same_type_for_tbaa and then it applies
    the assumption about disjointness or overlap

So I guess ideally we should

 1) do matching part of COMPONENT_REF
 2) compare OFFSET, BIT_OFFSET 
    This establishes that the access has same semantics.
 3) for -fno-strict-aliasing be happy
 4) for -fstrict-aliaisng check if access path applies (we should export
    predicate from tree-ssa-alias as discussed earlier)
 5) compare types by same_type_for_tbaa_p
