If it is important to put adding of const before adding of the
register, then you can emit similar sequence for other cases, too.
Something like following:

--cut here--
	  if (regno0 == regno1)
	    tmp = parts.index;
	  else if (regno0 == regno2)
	    tmp = parts.base;
	      rtx tmp1;

	      /* regno1: base, regno2: index  */
	      if (find_nearest_reg_def (insn, regno1, regno2))
		tmp1 = parts.index, tmp = parts.base;
		tmp1 = parts.base, tmp = parts.index;

	      emit_insn (gen_rtx_SET (VOIDmode, target, tmp1));

	  if (parts.disp && parts.disp != const0_rtx)
	    ix86_emit_binop (PLUS, mode, target, parts.disp);
	  ix86_emit_binop (PLUS, mode, target, tmp);
--cut here--

You didn't fix vertical spaces and tab issues in new patch.
