Well, we return 7 for moves between FPUL and MAC registers,
and FP regs are just one step away from FPUL.

REGISTER_MOVE_COST defines the cost to move data from register
in one class into a register of another class.  This can be
done in a single, direct move, or it can through one or more
intermediate registers.  If the cost is 2, reload will assume
that a single, direct move is possible, and won't bother to
look if the instruction needs fixing up.  Defining any higher
cost will make it inspect the instruction.

The SH4 can move V2SF vectors, and has instrutions to multiply V4SF
