Hi Dave (and Jeff),
For your consideration, here's a patch that should fix the recent regression
of gcc.dg/tree-ssa/slrt-13.c on hppa targets.

This patch provides more accurate rtx_costs estimates for shifts by
integer constants (which are cheaper than by a register amount).
Fine tuning these is sufficient to have simple-ssa-strength-reduce
prefer multiplications by four, over multiplications by five.

Technically only the ASHIFT is required to fix the regression, but for
I've added the appropriate PA-RISC values for all three shift types (in
I've also checked that this doesn't reintroduce PR middle-end/87256.

I was wondering whether you could please "put this in the queue", and
reconfirm that PR middle-end/87256 remains resolved?

	* config/pa/pa.c (hppa_rtx_costs) [ASHIFT, ASHIFTRT, LSHIFTRT]:
	Provide accurate costs for shifts of integer constants.

Many thanks in advance (and my apologies for the inconvenience),
