  Is EPILOGUE_USES only for the save and restore? I would have to add
  some big chunk of code to it and that would propagate to several
  places. It seems emitting a USE has lower impact.

  Here is what I am trying to do: I have a rs6000 port using V.4 ABI.
  The ABI has two fixed registers: r2 (_SDA2_BASE_) and r13 (_SDA_BASE_).
  I suppose normally these are initialized in an assembly file. I want
  the compiler emitting the appropriate load through a function attribute.
  Since I change the register it has to be saved and restored as well.
