Ahh. I actually tried to match the previous ones by Al, and they don't
follow that pattern.

Oops.

Yeah. They were literally me looking at my patch in my other tree, and
trying to make incremental progress.

Nobody else has a working compiler to even test that patch, because
even upstream tip-of-the-day llvm mis-generates code (I have a patch
that makes it generate ok code, but that one isn't good enough to
actually go upstream in llvm).

I don't think I'll do any more, because the next stage really is to
actually have some CONFIG_ASM_GOTO_WITH_INPUTS code and then try to
make something similar to the SET_CC for this.

Btw, do you guys have some better object code comparison thing than my
"objdump plus a few sed scripts to hide code movement effects"
