Re: [PATCH] Account for prologue spills in reg_pressure scheduling

On aarch64 I only see perf improvements with your patch: no perf degradations on
all the tests that I have run.

base0: r216447, -O3
base1: r216447, -O3 -fsched-pressure --param=sched-pressure-algorithm=2
patch: r216447 + your patch, -O3 -fsched-pressure --param=sched-pressure-algorithm=2

patch vs. base1 is only an improvement.

base1 vs. base0 has a few good improvements, and some small degradations: your
patch improves the perf for one of the degradations to the point it is better
now with -fsched-pressure --param=sched-pressure-algorithm=2 than at -O3.

Could we turn on "-fsched-pressure --param=sched-pressure-algorithm=2" by
default for aarch64?
