-freduce-all-givs and fortran

the fortran fontend enables by default -freduce-all-gics and
-fmove-all-movables.  This causes important problem on i386, where reducing all
givs brings too many temporary registers causing too many spills.

I don't follow the philosophy behind this decision.  What makes code generated
from fortran different?  It may be well possible that these options were
believed to help numeric code and waste integer one, but then it should be
documented and different option should be made for that, as numeric
programs are not limited to fortran.

Whats about simply dropping this?
