Calls should definitely be marked to have side-effects. To me the  
tricky cases are loads / stores. But can't we determine these from  
the operands? So, add one more condition:
3. if memory operation, no external symbol or global address inputs.

Then we don't need to mark loads / stores as having side effects.
