True. That's one of the reasons why I mentioned the possibility
of finding these insns and simply removing them.
Think about it for a while -- given a SET where the SET_SRC is a
pseudo which did not get a hard register and is equivalenced to
a read-only memory location, then the SET must be dead as it
can only be setting the memory location to the value already
in the memory location.
