definitely.  They have unfortunately diverged somewhat (not only in
handling of the dominators, but also in details like that split_block
on rtl creates the new block after the original one, while the tree one
before, etc. -- I have fixed a few of them on lno branch).

It is also neccessary to separate the ir specific stuff from the generic
one (updating dominators, probabilities, etc.).  My idea is to change
the macros defined in cfghooks.h into wrapper functions that would take
care of this, and disallow any other code but these wrappers to access
the low-level hooks that would be changed to do only the ir-specific stuff.

I think I have a program for this evening :-).

For long time it had an additional argument; and when it got removed,
it was just somehow missed.
