Look at this code in compute_forward_dependencies:
for (link = LOG_LINKS (insn); link; link = XEXP (link, 1))
rtx x = group_leader (XEXP (link, 0));
if (x != XEXP (link, 0))
INSN is the current insn and we're going to take its backwards dataflow
dependencies and turn them into forward dataflow dependencies. So let's
assume INSN has a dependency on something in a libcall block. We call
group_leader and get the tail of the libcall block, then we "continue"
and thus effectively drop the dependency.
