Just a thought, would it be better to move this check into the
eliminate_find_live_channel optimisation? That way it could catch
sources that become immediates through later optimisations. One problem
with this that I've seen before is that eliminating the
FIND_LIVE_CHANNEL doesn't cause the subsequent BROADCAST to be
eliminated because the copy propagation doesn't work. I made this patch
a while ago but I never posted it anywhere because it's a of a kludge
and it would probably be better to fix the copy propagation:


Either way though I don't think it would do any harm to have Kristian's
patch as well even if we did improve elimintate_find_live_channel so it
