It probably depends on how DF sees conditional uses / defs.  If they
look like regular uses / defs then I suppose un-conditional spills/reloads
are fine - otherwise of course you'd corrupt one of the two register set
states.  But that also means it's probably safe if the sequence of conditional
insns is of length 1.

Not sure we want to open that possible can of worms though ;)
