Here's a "reduced" test case.  It appears to be the expansion of

  stpcpy (mempcpy (stpcpy (stpcpy (xdomainname, categoryname), "/"),
                  domainname, domainname_len),

Beware.  This expands to over 180k of text, all one big
monsterous expression.  It does compress well though.  ;-)

It appears to be a bad interaction between the new functions
as trees switch table code and the alternate insn chains of
a call_placeholder.  I.e. the nesting around a call isn't correct,
and a label wound up inside one of the chains that was discarded.

I think it is clear that fold-const.c should be taught to recognize
when __builtin_constant_p is true so that we can prune some of these
expressions immediately.  Recognizing when it will be false is harder,
since global constant propogation should be done first.
