Similarly for x = a - c1.
+ x = !a
+ if (x) goto ... else goto ...
+ Will be transformed into:
+ if (a == 0) goto ... else goto ...
+ Similarly for the tests (x == 0), (x != 0), (x == 1) and (x != 1).
+ For these cases, we propagate A into all, possibly more than one,
+ COND_EXPRs that use X.
In addition to eliminating the variable and the statement which assigns
a value to the variable, we may be able to later thread the jump without
adding insane complexity in the dominator optimizer.
