In that case, here are the other potential trouble spots I found.  I
don't know that all of these can be called with a CONST_DOUBLE, but it
certainly looks like some of them can be:

exp_equiv_p in cse.c
rtx_equal_for_cselib_p in cselib.c
rtx_renumbered_equal_p in jump.c
rtx_equal_for_loop_p in loop.c
rtx_equal_for_prefetch_p in loop.c
operands_match_p in reload.c
