Not directly related to this patch, but seeing this I wonder if there
would be some value in introducing names for those magic 0/1/2/3 that
are used with __b_o_s. Every time I stumble on code using that I have to
go to the gcc docs, and even then it takes me a while to grok what

     TYPE is an integer constant from 0 to 3.  If the least significant
     bit is clear, objects are whole variables, if it is set, a closest
     surrounding subobject is considered the object a pointer points to.
     The second bit determines if maximum or minimum of remaining bytes
     is computed.

means. The names don't need to be too verbose, just having a few
#defines in-tree with the above quoted above them makes it a lot easier
to figure out what they mean.
