Yes, that's the C++ legalise - which is why I XFAILed that
part of the test rather than just removed it.  The middle-end
sees the object *this as existing and being global, thus
accessible and mutable by '::new' which when replaced by
the user could access and alter *this.  Like maybe for

S s;

void *operator new(..) { s.m = 0; }

main()
{
  new (&s) (1);
}

that may be invalid C++ but this detail of C++ is not
reflected in the GIMPLE IL.  Before the change that regressed
this if S::S() would call a global function foo() instead
of new to do the allocation the behavior would be as after
the change.  Isn't the call to new or foo part of the
construction and as such obviously allowed to access
and alter the in-construction object?
