[PATCH 0/3] Power10 PCREL_OPT support

I forgot to mention that comparing the three tests of placement of the
PCREL_OPT pass:

Having the pass after sched2 generated the same number of PCREL_OPT relocations
as having the pass immediately after reload.

But having the pass just before sched2 resulted in some more PCREL_OPT
relocations.  Mostly the number of instructions was the same, but a few
benchmarks had a few more 4-byte instructions generated.  It looks like those
new PCREL_OPT relocations replaced a few places where we loaded the address,
but did not do a PCREL_OPT optimization.
