I don't know the purpose of having TREE_COMPLEXITY as a general expression
field, but I'd like to replace C_EXP_ORIGINAL_CODE with a more robust
mechanism keeping track of some parser status (which is what this
essentially is - not relevant for code generation, only for warnings) in
separate structures for expressions that are passed around by value and
don't need allocation and garbage collection. This would also help in
fixing bug 11250 (distinguishing parenthesised and nonparenthesised
strings), and the constant expressions issues (456, 5675, 14649 at least)
where several flags are needed on expressions and types that are
irrelevant for code generation and don't need to bulk up trees.
At present, for C_EXP_ORIGINAL_CODE to work properly for -Wparentheses
warnings, constants derived from folding are artificially wrapped in
NON_LVALUE_EXPR so that C_EXP_ORIGINAL_CODE can be set. Whether something
is an lvalue is another parser property that can be tracked as a single
bit outside the trees rather than allocating a NON_LVALUE_EXPR node,
irrelevant for code generation, in various cases.
However, the warning for assignments used as truth values is in code
shared between C and C++, and uses C_EXP_ORIGINAL_CODE, which complicates
getting fix of it.
