If the documentation for the various arrays are correct:
/* For each register that may be used for calling a function, this
gives a mode used to copy the register's value. VOIDmode indicates
the register is not used for calling a function. If the machine
has register windows, this gives only the outbound registers.
INCOMING_REGNO gives the corresponding inbound register. */
then the current code that uses reg_raw_mode[regno] is ok to initialize
the array since we check that HARD_REGNO_MODE_OK is valid for any mode
that we come up with before we return the mode. If HARD_REGNO_MODE_OK
is true then there has to be a move instruction that we can use to pull
the value out or put the value into the register. This works the same
for both apply_args_mode and apply_value_mode.
At least, that's how I'm reading how these are supposed to work.
