On the following testcase, we recurse infinitely, because
we have float re-association enabled, but also rounding-math, so
we try to optimize (cst1 + cst2) + cst3 as (cst2 + cst3) + cst1
but (cst2 + cst3) doesn't simplify and we try again and optimize
it as (cst3 + cst1) + cst2 and then (cst1 + cst2) + cst3 and so on
forever. If @0 is not a CONSTANT_CLASS_P, there is not a problem,
if it is, the code just checks if we can actually simplify the
operation between cst2 and cst3 into a constant.
Is there a reason to try simplifying at all for constant @0?
Yes. cst2+cst3 might simplify (the operation happens to be exact and not
require rounding), which leaves us with only one addition instead of 2.
On the other hand, mixing -frounding-math with reassociation seems strange
to me, and likely not worth optimizing for.
