I wonder if during/after reload we just couldn't look at
ORIGINAL_REGNO of hard regs if ix86_use_pseudo_pic_reg.  Or is that
the other case, where you don't have any PIC register replacement around,
and want to subtract something?  Perhaps in that case we could just
subtract the value of _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ symbol if we have nothing better
