cmd/compile: extendslice contains n.SetLikely(false), which does nothing #32486

extendslice contains: nifneg.SetLikely(false). But the Likely flag on Node is boolean; setting it to false has no effect at all. To make it do something, we'd need to invert the condition and set it to true. But given that the body contains a panic-style call, I suspect we already do the right thing for likeliness, and we should just delete the call to SetLikely.

This issue is a reminder to investigate and either delete or fix the SetLikely call.

Thanks for filling the reminder. Makes sense to remove for Go1.14 after confirming the branch layout is correct without it. I wonder if we have any way (or should have) to explicit communicate from front to backbend that an if is not taken.
