Reassociation does not work for signed integers because signed integer
is not wrap-around type in C. You can change it by passing -fwrapv
option but it will disable other useful optimization. Reassociation of
signed integers without this option is not a trivial question because
in that case you may introduce overflows and therefore undefined
