Ok with changing the gcc_assert to

  if (SSA_NAME_IN_FREE_LIST (use))
       error ("statement uses released SSA name");
       debug_gimple_stmt (stmt);
       err = true;

and after checking all stmts

  if (err)
    internal_error ("cannot update SSA form");

you might want to push/pop TV_TREE_STMT_VERIFY around all this
as well.
