A general question first, I see code in bb-reorder.c (in copy_bb_p) that 
limits the amount of code growth if not optimizing for speed. Is that 
not working as expected or not sufficient?

Your code looks like a nice clean algorithm so I have no objections to 
it (detailed comments to follow), but I want to make sure it is 
necessary to add it.
