We don't use the per-instruction flags yet.

Sadly, we need this flag to be able to get (1/sqrt) -> RSQ and (1/x)
-> RCP. LLVM doesn't have standard intrinsics for those instructions,
so we have to unwind them and rely on LLVM to combine them. Without
it, the TGSI->LLVM conversion would produce worse code.
