Re: [RFA] fix PR/26778 by reapplying a reverted patch

Could you also add a test to the testsuite?  Perhaps the one from the
PR by scanning for SSE registers on x86 which I believe shouldn't appear
anywhere in the assembler after this patch.
Unless Ulrich has an objection, this is OK for mainline. Given the
historical problems I think its best to let it bake for at least
a week or two on mainlaine before considering backporting it (and any
necessary AIX, x86 and SH changes) to the 4.0/4.1 branches to resolve
this PR. It might be that the total patch set is too intrusive and
we may need to close this as WONTFIX for 4.0 and maybe even 4.1.
The WONTFIX was my plan as well. Personally I won't attempt a backport.
Thanks to both you and Richard G for testing on five backends, it
helps improve confidence that this is a reasonable fix in stage 3.
Thanks to you and Dale for fixing this; conceptually I like this
reload change a lot.
Well, luckily it's regclass. But it upset as many targets as if it was a reload or combine change. ;-)
