We wrap the libcalls inside libcall notes using REG_EQUAL notes

My patch from September (http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2007-09/
msg01351.html) should help with the libcall issue a bit, by making
the trapping libcalls not be considered dead, even if optimizations
make the results not get used. (Was I supposed to re-submit the
patch in non-unidiff format? I've had a couple of machine die on me
recently, I might have to reconstruct the source tree.) Of course,
if the trapping math is optimized away before you get to emitting
libcalls, that's a different bug.
