I don't have access to the SPEC benchmarks unfortunately.  Maybe Yuri
can isolate a test case?

But I think I found a theoretical bug which may or may not coincide with
the bug that Yuri is observing.  The part of the combining step that may
provide wrong results for VECTOR_TYPEs is the one that simplifies the
conditional (A & B) != 0 to true when given that A != 0 and B != 0 and
given that their TYPE_PRECISION is 1.

The TYPE_PRECISION test was intended to succeed only on scalars, but
IIUC it accidentally succeeds on one-dimensional vectors too.  So we may
be wrongly simplifying X & Y != <0> to true given that e.g.  X == <8>
and Y == <2>.  So this simplification should probably be restricted to
integral types like so:

diff --git a/gcc/tree-ssa-threadedge.c b/gcc/tree-ssa-threadedge.c

Hope this makes sense.
