in the similar case of -floop-optimize, we kept the flag, so this seems
to be a precedent. However, I guess much more people were using
-floop-optimize than -fcse-skip-blocks, so just removing the flag might
be possible as well.
There's the possibility to deprecate the option in 4.2 - and as it is not
frequently used remove it for 4.3.
