Not at all. The function looks like this:

static void
gather_mem_refs_in_loops (bitmap loops_with_too_many_memrefs)
{
  FOR_EACH_BB (bb)
    {
       for each gimple statement
         all_ok = gather_mem_refs_stmt (loop, gsi_stmt (bsi));
    if (! all_ok)
        bitmap_set_bit (loops_with_too_many_memrefs, loop->num);
    }

  /* Propagate the information about loops with too many memory
     references up the loop hierarchy.  */
  FOR_EACH_LOOP (li, loop, LI_FROM_INNERMOST)
    {
      struct loop *outer = loop_outer (loop);
      if (outer == current_loops->tree_root
          || ! bitmap_bit_p (loops_with_too_many_memrefs, loop->num))
        continue;
      bitmap_set_bit (loops_with_too_many_memrefs, outer->num);
    }

  /* Propagate the information about accessed memory references up
     the loop hierarchy.  */
  FOR_EACH_LOOP (li, loop, LI_FROM_INNERMOST)
    /* Propagate stuff */
}

So all basic blocks are visited first.
Note it is also like this without my patch.

Right, I guess the limit should be per-loop, and it's "global" now.

That is already what happens.

Obviously.

That's a good idea.

I'll come back with an updated patch for trunk GCC 4.9.

Ciao!
