Note, looking at the previous bootstraps before your change, insn-recog.o
was taking <= 15-16 minutes to compile both in stage2 and stage3 (the <=
stands for comparison of oldest *.o file in {,prev-}gcc/ directory and
insn-recog.o, but for the latest bootstrap stage3 I remember seeing in top
58 minutes and it was still compiling, haven't looked exactly when it
stopped).  In any case, most likely it doesn't mean actual slow down in
performance of generated code, but medium slowdown in non-g compile time
of extreme testcase and -g compile time going wild.
