In the case of JUMP_TABLES_IN_TEXT_SECTION, yes, you absolutely cannot
share the table.  This is used by targets that use pc-relative addressing
from the jump instruction to the table.  VAX is the most extreme example
in that the entire table is an argument to the instruction.

Without JUMP_TABLES_IN_TEXT_SECTION, you might be able to get away with
sharing the tables.  I don't have a good feel for what sort of problems
you might encounter.

Which ones?

There are no NOTE_INSN_EH_REG_BE/END notes during optimization.  They
only exist during initial rtl generation and during final assemble output.

Yes, that's already implemented.

The frame_related flag is never set for epilogues, only prologues.

Not ok yet -- you'll have to figure out what to do about addr_vec.
