Thanks for noticing this.

Do we also need to update DWARF_REG_TO_UNWIND_COLUMN similarly, which
also uses FIRST_PSEUDO_REGISTER when the dwarf reg is an SPE synthetic
register?  Or should we just break the dependence on FIRST_PSEUDO_REGISTER
altogether so this type of thing doesn't happen again?  Otherwise, we
should place a comment at the definition of FIRST_PSEUDO_REGISTER
warning of it's use in DWARF_FRAME_REGISTER.
