Well, that just means we need two sets of predicates to check for
a builtin call.  The __builtin_unreachable code wants to know what
the callee is, not if that's a "valid" call to it.  But yeah - this
starts to get confusing :/

I start to think this is a too complex transform for stmt folding ...

So a patch just keeping the targets.length () == 1 case in folding
with just replacing the fndecl of the call is ok.
