I don't really like this code.  My understanding is that this would  
only occur for nodes that are dead because of CCP.  A dead node can  
only have dead users so doesn't calling add_users_to worklist on a  
dead node seem like a bad idea?  If we want dead nodes from CCP to be  
cleaned up then shouldn't CCP be doing it?
