Thanks.  I'm going to see if I can coax this ppc specifc test into
a more general test :-)

As for the fix, the real bug is actually in choose_reload_regs, but
fixing it is somewhat involved.

So for egcs-1.1, we're installing a variant of your patch.  Jim and
Joern will continue to work on the right fix for the mainline tree.
