The patch is attached.
This algorithm works in the postreload phase (register
allocation algorithms produce the unnecessary plus/minus
insn which is described in PR 10242). If I misplaced the
code, correct me, please!

I've only one comment on using this algorithm. It doesn't
test if the combined constant can be stored in the target
specific instruction. The flow2 phase is responsible for
this testing, and it corrects the problem if necessary.
