No. We should have a structure poly_dr that contains a pointer not to
a gimple stmt but a pointer to a poly_bb.

If we have a poly_dr struct we will not lose this information.

We will have to clean up the data_reference struct as we did cleaned
up the scop and graphite_bb data structures: get the polyhedral part
separated from the GCC part for the data_reference structure.
PCP will come later in the play, and so we will have to have the data
reference and dependence relations structures ready with no links to
the GCC representation in it.
