Don't be ridiculous.  The stage1 compiler is never going to be
identical to the stage2 compiler.  Ignoring for the moment the
fact that stage1 is compiled with some random preexisting compiler
with all optimizations off, there is a similar chunk of logic in the
tree and RTL checking macros, which potentially affects every file in

You are looking in the wrong place.  The observed difference is a
register allocation choice; why aren't you looking at the register
