I believe we can only benefit from removing extra stores.
Hot functions in existing benchmarks are probably optimized good
enough already, but speeding up the long tail is also important.
Also, at least the repro in
https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=40527 has been extracted from a
real kernel benchmark (hackbench), where this extra store costed us
