Re: dangerous cleverness? ppc int<->float conversions, subreg


	In a way you are lying to GCC because the architecture itself
places the integer value in the FPR -- it's not just a detail of the
rs6000 machine description.  Subreg may be okay, but it can inhibit some
optimizations and liveness knowledge.
