So don't these tests do what you asked me to do already, it seems they used tidig.x
and one adds a value to it.
This stuff is well beyond my current knowledge of the compiler, I just found what fixed the bug I was seeing in mesa that is blocking us from enabling ARB_gpu_shader5 and subsequently GL4, I'm not sure I have the correct knowledge to write a unit test for some side effects of fixing this bug.
