This used to happen a lot, then it didn't - for instance the 3.1
branch sources don't seem to need the larger stack - and now it's
started happening again on the trunk. I'm sure an analysis would
be interesting; expr.c has some of the largest functions in all of
GCC, so if an optimization algorithm has excessive stack usage/depth,
stage 2 compilation of expr.c is where you'll see it first.
