+Summary: [PATCH] use xor esi, esi to set a regvar to 0
+This patch uses the shorter xor esi, esi encoding when we set a regvar to
+zero. Before, we only did this as a peephole opt. The problem with this
+method is that the flow of cflags information is not clear from the
+My patch does the optimization at the tree level. We know that cflags are
+not propagated from one tree to another. Thus, if we see stind.x (regvar,
+iconst [0]), we know we can use the xor encoding.
