Then you're also missing a heap of optimizations in code like
rb_erase_augmented() which is specifically constructed to take advantage
of constant propagation like that.

Other sites where we expect that to happen is __mutex_lock_common(),
__update_load_sum() and a bunch of others. There isn't strictly a bug
here, but not doing that constant propagation will still result in shit
code gen.
