The problem with combine is only "collateral damage" from what dse1 is
doing to this function.  It's loading stored values into registers and
replacing re-loads with those registers, as in:

The distance between the store and load is large, and that is what is
causing combine to blow up -- walking all the insns between 605734 and
487113 (about 500 of them, which appears to be typical).  This also
increases register pressure, causing the poor IRA/LRA/postreload numbers.

Also not great: dse is loading the same stored value into multiple
registers, e.g.:

but I'm guessing (and verifying now) that this is cleaned up by fwprop2.
