Improve __builtin_constant_p lowering

Authored by joerg on Sep 16 2019, 3:13 PM.



__builtin_constant_p used to be short-cut evaluated to false when building with -O0. This is undesirable as it means that constant folding in the front-end can give different results than folding in the back-end. It can also create conditional branches on constant conditions that don't get folded away. With the improvements to the handling on the LLVM side, the short-cut is no longer useful.

Adjust various codegen tests to not depend on the optimizations.

OK, this is fine by me if you're confident this doesn't degrade the generated code at -O0.
