BTW, one comment on this one:

    // Note: is this an optimization?  It prevents adding a link from     
    // unconstrained operands.  This is always safe, and it shouldn't lose
    // opportunity, but maybe we should discuss it to be sure?     
    if ( !src->isUnconstrained() ) {

I marked operands unconstrained in case they do not fit into 64 bit
constants. We can not deal with them. Another case is when the
instruction is "not supported" by ABCD such as multiplication and many
others. So, it is not an optimization.
