Do you mean here conversions that are processed by STRIP_NOPS? STRIP_NOPS is
not used to process all conversions. There are things that are converted with
other operators like FLOAT_EXPR, FIX_TRUNC_EXPR, VIEW_CONVERT_EXPR, etc. This
code solely handles NOP_EXPR, CONVERT_EXPR and NON_LVALUE_EXPR.
And even if this type of conversion were used for your example, how would
keeping the check for TYPE_MODE change anything? I am assuming that the same
machine mode and precision is used for an aggregate type regardless of its
Speaking of converting between const and non-const version of an aggregate
type, I guess I should really test this patch with Ada as well.
