Consider this rewrite rule:

(ADDQ x l:(MOVQload [off] {sym} ptr mem)) && canMergeLoadClobber(v, l, x) && clobber(l) -> (ADDQload x [off] {sym} ptr mem)

The canMergeLoadClobber condition is pure (free from side-effects). The clobber condition is not really a condition at all, but pretends to be one and is there for side-effects instead.

It'd be nice, for both clarity and reusability, to be able to put side-effects on the RHS of the rule. Something like:

(ADDQ x l:(MOVQload [off] {sym} ptr mem)) && canMergeLoadClobber(v, l, x) -> clobber(l); (ADDQload x [off] {sym} ptr mem)

noteRule, warnRule, and clobberIfDead all belong on the RHS.

@mundaym's hypothetical mergeSuccessor function could also be naturally split into pure conditional LHS and impure RHS.

Sure, I like it.
It's a little bit strange that in A; B A is a Go statement and B is an s-expression. But I'm ok with that.
