Basically this promotes the "init_insns" field within struct equivalence
from an rtx to an rtx_insn_list.

The only thing that's really interesting here is the old code exploits
the fact that we could put any RTX in the list by shoving const0_rtx
into the init_insns list as a marker to indicate we've already
determined the relevant pseudo must not have an equivalence.

Thus we could have the following objects in the init_insns field:


This patch uses INSN_LIST (NULL_RTX, NULL) as the special marker.  Thus
the only two things that would exist in the init_insns field would be
NULL or an INSN_LIST.  Goodness.

Rather than stash away the special marker INSN_LIST into a global
variable or something similar, we instead to do a two step check for the
marker.  First verify that the insn_list field is non-NULL, then look at
the first insn in the list and see if that is NULL.

Bootstrapped and regression tested on i686-unknown-linux-gnu and

Ok for the trunk?


	* ira.c (struct equivalence): Promote INIT_INSNs field to
	an rtx_insn_list.  Add comments.
	(no_equiv): Promote LIST to an rtx_insn_list.  Update

	(update_equiv_regs): Update test for special marker in the
	INIT_INSNs list.

FWIW, presumably "insn" here also can now be an rtx_insn *?
Yes.  I'll update that.  Thanks.
