Right. See below for new changeset.

We want to handle CallLeaf to remove a call to a (useless) SATB barrier
for which the corresponding store has been eliminated. G1 does something
similar, but can figure it out coming from the post-barrier, which has a
link to the pre-barrier. We need to do it this way. After we've done
that, we still want the rest of CallLeaf processing to apply.

Right, that would be a more intuitive way to do it. My original idea was
to avoid touching the default branch if GC handled the node so that we
don't accidentally trip one of the asserts there, but we can use the
same flag to avoid the switch altogether.

In order to make this sane, I moved the main switch into its own method.
