Right, also, the code you described doesn't cover cases where a
non-constant value is 0.

No, those are the only two tests that regressed for me. So I guess this
can be ignored for now. It would be interesting to know which tests Alex
was referring to though, which were fixed by switching from MUL_IEEE to
MUL. Maybe those are covered by the code you described above though.
