I do not think that you should have had to do that stuff that you did in
the fortran front end. We should be able to represent enough
information about fortran arrays and aliasing so that you do not need to
do that so early.
If we are able to do that, then lto would be able to do those same
transformation after doing a round of inter file inlining.
