Bug description

I've been working on a common subexpression elimination pass for the OCaml back-end, which, if successful, should subsume the factoring of Iconst_symbol instructions proposed here. The CSE is in branch branches/backend-optims of the OCaml SVN. Performance gains (on AMD64) are unimpressive so far, but I continue experimental evaluation in my spare time. To be continued.

CSE optimization is now in trunk, and I believe it achieves similar results. (Observed on amd64, to be checked on ARM.)
