The following patch address the first (and easiest to resolve) of
these issues, using the implementation you propose.  The second is
trickier, and may require a reorganization/API change.  If I can't
figure out a way to address it, we might have to revert thst part
of the patch, and hope this optimization gets implemented at the
tree level.

The following patch has been tested on i686-pc-linux-gnu with a full
"make bootstrap", all default languages, and regression tested with a
top-level "make -k check" with no new failures.

Ok for mainline?

	* ifcvt.c (noce_emit_move_insn): Construct a SET pattern directly
	instead of calling emit_move_insn with an arbitrary RHS.
