Original pastebin

This is a forwarded complaint by "bearophile" on LLVM IRC, who unfortunately
never files bugs.

The following naive factorial function does not get optimized into a loop, even
at -O3.

long fact(long x) {
    if (x <= 0)
        return 1;
        return x * fact(x - 1);

gcc-4.3.3 apparently can do this.
