Re: rtlopt loop unroller question

First, tnx for your patch; the code is indeed much better!
However, if we complicate the example a little bit:

  int A[N];
  int B[N];
  int C[N];
  int i;

  for (i=0; i<N; i++)
  return A;

we still get the inefficient addressing calculations.
Using static variables instead of local ones yields
much better code with or without your patch.

The second thing is that the redundant address calculation are being
in the simple cse after reload (postreload) so the unroller still gets
warped code.
Can it be fixed earlier?

Finally, we still get redundant adds (compared to old-unroll); can
something be
done to fix them too?
