OK, let's try this again.  The following (reduced from a gcc test) repeatedly
allocates a variable-sized object.  The intent is that each should be
deallocated before the next is allocated, to avoid blowing out the stack. 
llvm-gcc generates code to do this, but the optimizer decides the deallocation
can be deleted (fails with -O2).

I can't get it to fail with any of the standard looping constructs, which
diminishes the importance considerably IMO.  

void *volatile p;
int main (void)
  int n = 0;
  int x[n % 47 + 1];
  x[0] = 1;
  p = x;
  if (++n < 1000000)
    goto lab;
  return 0;
