This last sentence is the problem.  Reload should be able to move
any constant into a register.

Most likely the problem is in the chunk of code in rs6000_emit_move
that starts with:

          && TARGET_NO_TOC
          && ! flag_pic
          && mode == Pmode
          && CONSTANT_P (operands[1])
          && GET_CODE (operands[1]) != HIGH
          && GET_CODE (operands[1]) != CONST_INT)
