Seems your patch doesn't cover all cases.  Attached is a modified
patch (with your changes included) and a test where double constant is
wrongly rematerialized.  I also see in ira dump that there is still a
copy of PIC reg created:

Initialization of original PIC reg:
(insn 23 22 24 2 (set (reg:SI 127)
        (reg:SI 3 bx)) test.cc:42 90 {*movsi_internal}
     (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:SI 3 bx)
        (nil)))
...
Copy is created:
(insn 135 37 25 3 (set (reg:SI 138 [127])
        (reg:SI 127)) 90 {*movsi_internal}
     (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:SI 127)
        (nil)))
...
Copy is used:
(insn 119 25 122 3 (set (reg:DF 134)
        (mem/u/c:DF (plus:SI (reg:SI 138 [127])
                (const:SI (unspec:SI [
                            (symbol_ref/u:SI ("*.LC0") [flags 0x2])
                        ] UNSPEC_GOTOFF))) [5  S8 A64])) 128 {*movdf_internal}
     (expr_list:REG_EQUIV (const_double:DF
2.9999999999999997371893933895137251965934410691261292e-4
[0x0.9d495182a99308p-11])
        (nil)))

After reload we have new usage of r127 which is allocated to ecx which
actually does not have any definition in this function at all.

(insn 151 42 44 4 (set (reg:SI 0 ax [147])
        (plus:SI (reg:SI 2 cx [127])
            (const:SI (unspec:SI [
                        (symbol_ref/u:SI ("*.LC0") [flags 0x2])
                    ] UNSPEC_GOTOFF)))) test.cc:44 213 {*leasi}
     (expr_list:REG_EQUAL (symbol_ref/u:SI ("*.LC0") [flags 0x2])
        (nil)))
(insn 44 151 45 4 (set (reg:DF 21 xmm0 [orig:129 D.2450 ] [129])
        (mult:DF (reg:DF 21 xmm0 [orig:128 D.2450 ] [128])
            (mem/u/c:DF (reg:SI 0 ax [147]) [5  S8 A64]))) test.cc:44
790 {*fop_df_comm_sse}
     (expr_list:REG_EQUAL (mult:DF (reg:DF 21 xmm0 [orig:128 D.2450 ] [128])
            (const_double:DF
2.9999999999999997371893933895137251965934410691261292e-4
[0x0.9d495182a99308p-11]))
        (nil)))

Compilation string: g++ -m32 -O2 -mfpmath=sse -fPIE -S test.cc
