gcc 5.1+ (I think) have the __builtin_OP_overflow checks that should
generate reasonable code. Too bad there's no completely generic
check_all_ops_in_this_expression(a+b*c+d/e, or_jump_here). Though it's
hard to define what they should be checked against - probably would
require all subexpressions (including the variables themselves) to have
the same type.
