We are losing optimization because of binds_to_current_def_p not seing
through partitions in other cases too, so it would only help the nested
functoins and not other cases.

For example we may determine callee to not read gloal memory but we
apply this logic only if we know that callee will not be replaced by
semantically equivalent one that does (i.e. because it is not optimized
and contains dead global pointer dereference that may ICE).

Also in general we do not want to impose aritificial constrains to

I had patch that was explicitly storing binds_to_current_def flag to
cgraph nodes that should make this problem go away, but I need to look
it up (it is years old and I guess i forgot to commit it back then)
