Extended Description

Brian pointed out that the Olden/mst benchmark has code that basically looks
like this:

main() {
Do_all_BlueRule(..., 1, 0);
}

void Do_all_BlueRule(..., int nproc, int pn) {
if (nproc > 1) {
Do_all_BlueRule(nproc/2, nproc/2+pn);
... A BUNCH OF OTHER STUFF ...
}

bar();
}

The observation is that Do_all_BlueRule contains a bunch of code that is
dynamically dead, but it requires a smarter IPCP algorithm to notice it (the
unreachable recursive call causes us to miss this).

It seems like an aggressive IPCP coupled with SCCP'y techniques could solve this
pretty easily.

Here's a trivial testcase this should handle:

implementation ; Functions:

internal int %foo(int %X) {
%Y = call int %foo( int %X ) ; [#uses=1]
%Z = add int %Y, 1 ; [#uses=1]
ret int %Z
}

void %bar() {
call int %foo( int 17 ) ; :0 [#uses=0]
ret void
}

IPCP should realize that %X is always '17'. The current, simple IPCP, should
detect and handle this too. I wish it already did, it would help pool
allocation. :(

ok, another note. Simple IPCP now handles the simple case above.

There is more to come for this PR, stay tuned!
