As explained in the audit trail, the goal of the fix for PR debug/44205:

       * tree-cfgcleanup.c (tree_forwarder_block_p): Return false if
       at -O0 goto_locus of any of the incoming edges differs from
       goto_locus of outgoing edge, or gimple_location of any of the
       labels differs.

was to enable the bypassing of forwarder blocks at -O0 when the locus on the 
edges to be threaded represent both either UNKNOWN_LOCATION or the same 
location.  It was made for GCC 4.6 and below when the locus value represented 
only the location information so a simple locus comparison was used.

Since then the locus value was changed and represents now a combination of 
location information and block information.  This means that you can have 2 
locus representing both UNKNOWN_LOCATION but with different values and the 
change disabled the bypassing of forwarder blocks in this case.

The attached patch reenables it, i.e. when the locus on the edges represent 
both UNKNOWN_LOCATION.  The idiom is already used at the RTL level e.g. in 
try_forward_edges.  That's quite effective in Ada to remove dead branches 
generated for size computations of variable-sized types at -O0.

Tested (GCC and GDB) on x86-64/Linux, applied on the mainline as obvious.

	* tree-cfgcleanup.c (tree_forwarder_block_p): Do not return false at
	-O0 if the locus represent UNKNOWN_LOCATION but have different values.
