I think you should just take a new register, instead of generating a
no-op move. This probably helps for other things as well, e.g. for
passes that look at DF_REG_DEF_COUNT (reg_scan, alias, ...). OTOH,
maybe that only "helps" up to CPROP pass, if the register is
copy-propagated and the set is made useless. Dunno...
