   I agree that we don't need SEQUENCE rtl.  But I disagree with throwing
   away information that we need again straight ahead, i.e. a pointer to
   the last insn.
   
9 times out of ten the information is still there, via
get_last_insn().  And like I said the other cases can be handled
too.

We both agree that the information needs to be passed around,
I'm saying using throw away RTL is not the way we should do this.
Your response was to use some kind of cache, and I said that
fixed limitations in sequence depth is not acceptable.

Can we just install my change and move on to the next thing?
We are arguing in circles at this point and it is at least mildly
frustrating.
