Actually I think the problem is just that the patch has never get into
3.2 line.
The patch is pretty involved:
	* combine.c (simplify_set): Reverse order of ragumetns to
	* df.c (df_def_record_1): Likewise.
	* recog.c (register_operand): Likewise.
	* simplify-rtx.c (simplify_subreg): Likewise.
	* hard-reg-set.h (REG_CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_P): Update use of
	* regclass.c (cannot_change_mode_set_regs, invalid_mode_change_p):
	* reload.c (push_reload): Likewise.
	* alpha.h (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): Update definition.
	* ia64.h (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): Update definition.
	* mips.h (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): Update definition.
	* mips-protos.h (mips_cannot_change_mode_class): Update prototype.
	* mips.c (mips_cannot_change_mode_class): Update.
	* pa64-regs.h (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): Update definition.
	* rs6000.h (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): Update definition.
	* s390.h (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): Update definition.
	* sh.h (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): Update definition.
	* sh-protos.h (sh_cannot_change_mode_class): Update prototype.
	* sh.c (sh_cannot_change_mode_class): Update.
	* tm.texi (CANNOT_CHANGE_MODE_CLASS): Update documentation.
and I believe that the MMX suport in 3.2 is in so bad shape that I would
simply close the bugreport claiming that 3.3 fixes that.
