[PATCH] Split critical edges before late uninit warning pass

This patch adds critical edge splitting before the late uninit
warning pass in the -Og pipeline (the patch is for the 4.8 branch
where the testcase otherwise fails).  If I commit this then I'll
commit a corresponding change to trunk as well.

On trunk we can also split critical edges in the regular pipeline
to mitigate the issue the late uninit warning pass has with
critical edges, posssibly reducing the number of false positives.

Critical edges are unsplit by the next CFG cleanup which happens
at latest during pass_cleanup_cfg_post_optimizing.

Bootstrap / regtest running on the branch for x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu.

It should make -Og more usable on the branch and as it is quite
new I suppose the change qualifies for the branch (I lately
moved some passes there for other diagnostic issues).

Opinions on generally splitting critical edges before late
uninit warnings?
