Unroller with branch and count patch

This patch is intended for GCC mainline. It enables the GCC 3.4 new
unroller to work with loops ending with an branch and count instruction
(this is a frequent case on Power due to the doloop optimization).
It corrects the regression seen for the GCC 3.4 new unroller on Power
platforms for the option -funroll-loops (we intend to submit this patch
also to GCC 3.4).

Testing was done on Power4. Bootstrapping was done by
adding -funroll-loops to -O2 level of optimization (as our changes
affect the unrolling). Regression test passed successfully.
