I'm still a bit worried about the overlap between the expanded
noce_convert_multiple_sets and cond_move_process_if_block (5/9).
It seems like we're making noce_convert_multiple_set handle most of
the conditional move cases that cond_move_process_if_block can handle.
But like you say, noce_convert_multiple_set is still restricted to
half-diamonds, whereas cond_move_process_if_block can handle full

3/9, 4/9 and 8/9 seems like good independent improvements.
But for 5/9, 6/9 and 7/9, it looks to me like it would be better
to improve cond_move_process_if_block so that it handles all the
conditional move cases you're targetting.

Definitely welcome other opinions though. :-)
