About saturating_flag, if I cannot add a new flag in either tree_common
or tree_type, I will need to use lang_flag_2 in c-tree.h
#define C_TYPE_SATURATING(TYPE) TYPE_LANG_FLAG_2 (TYPE)
Neh, you're implementing a set of types in the middle-end, so using a
C only flag is Badness.
I'd keep it as you have it with saturing_flag for now, but add a FIXME
there so that it doesn't slip in if/when you merge to the trunk many
months from now. We're probably going to have to shuffle with those
flags anyway when all the 'tree' cleanup projects go in.
