The case is (set (reg) (UNSPEC:<fp_mode> (mem))), which is trapping 
because it is a floating point operation (it doesn't even get to 
analyzing the mem).

This is how the same problem is solved on sel-sched-branch.  I agree 
that it won't hurt to teach may_trap_p to ask target about UNSPECs.

Not if default_unspec_may_trap_p () is defined in rtlanal.c .
