I thought I already did. Unless you suggest that my case was
unrealistic or unimportant, of course, but it's not as if trying to
find the largest element of an array is unusual, and it's not as if
the obvious way to do it using MIN/MAX is unusual.

I think we should ask a C2 specialist if it's possible to use profile
data to select whether the intrinsic is generated or not.
