// Perform peephole optimizations on the machine code:
// - Optimize Extensions
//     Optimization of sign / zero extension instructions. It may be extended to
//     handle other instructions with similar properties.
//     On some targets, some instructions, e.g. X86 sign / zero extension, may
//     leave the source value in the lower part of the result. This optimization
//     will replace some uses of the pre-extension value with uses of the
//     sub-register of the results.
// - Optimize Comparisons
//     Optimization of comparison instructions. For instance, in this code:
//       sub r1, 1
//       cmp r1, 0
//       bz  L1
//     If the "sub" instruction all ready sets (or could be modified to set) the
//     same flag that the "cmp" instruction sets and that "bz" uses, then we can
//     eliminate the "cmp" instruction.
