As for b2i I'm not really convinced using INEG is preferable there.
Generally I'd favor logic ops over arithmetic any day.
I suppose backend probably need to try to recognize such patterns anyway
for best performance (so that for instance things like b2i->i2b should
be no-ops), and I just don't see that INEG using AND instead would help
much there in general. But I don't really know...
