Mea culpa. Zack is completely innocent, the testsuite regressions
are my fault. Zack asked that I modify my patch to optabs.c's
prepare_float_lib_cmp to call emit_libcall_block directly, but I
screwed up the reorganization, not realizing that "equiv" mustn't
be a NULL_RTX, otherwise very bad things happen...
I've already posted a fix at:
Hopefully, it will be reviewed in the very near future.
The problem shouldn't affect bootstrap as it only shows up with
-O0 when using software floating point, but it is likely to be
the cause of FRV's/HPPA64's regressions.
Sorry again for any inconvenience. The problem doesn't show up
on x86, and even the -msoft-float tests are never run at -O0,
so it wasn't found during my retesting. The original patch to
prepare_float_lib_cmp was more widely tested without any problems,
but I underestimated the "obvious" tidy-up.
