No, this does not appear to be the case.  I wonder why we haven't
tripped over this ages ago?

The problem is that emit_cmp_insn is being called with a constant as
the first operand and a register as the second operand.  I'll generate
a patch to avoid this case.

I suppose emit_cmp_insn should abort for this case.  Interestingly,
if the pa MD disallowed this operand combination, then emit_cmp_insn
would have forced the constant into a register.
