There's always (set (parallel (...)) (some-expression)).  We use
parallels with similar semantics in cumulative function arguments, so
this wouldn't be entirely new, but I suppose most rtl handlers would
need a bit of work to fully understand the implications of this.

Also, the fact that reg CC has a different mode might require some
further tweaking.

Given this, we could figure out some way to create lisp-like macros to
translate input shorthands such as (set_cc (match_operand) (value))
into the uglier (set (parallel (match_operand) (cc0)) (value)),
including the possibility of a port introducing multiple
variants/modes for set_cc, corresponding to different sets of flags
that various instructions may set.
