We could use separate pseudos for each variable on the stack
instead of one virtual-stack-vars pseudo. A stack allocation
pass then would perform life analysis on these pseudos and
transform them to the one-and-only virtual-stack-vars reg.
No idea if that would (easily) work out, of course. Some targets
may have different costs and thus optimization decision based
on the offset size used with virtual-stack-vars.
