DECL_CONTEXT for a label *is* used.  You stated in the next comment
that cfgexpand makes use of it.  We run cfgexpand both in cc1/cc1plus
and lto1.  So, if it's used in cc1/cc1plus, it *is* used in lto1

Sure.  But that's not all that the comment says.  The comment says
that the context of labels is no longer used.  That's what doesn't
seem right to me, based on your other comment.

What about this?


  else if (code == GIMPLE_LABEL)
    DECL_CONTEXT (gimple_label_label (stmt)) = fn->decl;
