I think its maybe because there is no connection between 1. and 2. (or 
at least gcc thinks it). And because he wanted just 2. in the first 
place he thinks that he can optimize 1. away.

There are different ways to overcome this:

a. make the add_float-pattern not only match the add but also the 
setting of the flags, this way they kept together
b. make 1. volatile so he didnt optimize it away (but then it will also 
remain there if he can optimize 2. away)
c. add to the add_float (use special_reg) or whatever to tell him that 
he requires the special registers.
