Sorry, the word "still" wasn't meant to refer to historic gcc; I
meant to refer to whether the scheduler was able to freely move
insns "still" after a change to this mechanism. Not that it
matters for MMIX, but I guess it would for alpha (if replacing
the TARGET_ASM_FUNCTION_END_PROLOGUE code with an unspec* that
outputs the ".prologue N" pseudo).

I'm willing to investigate, but I can't see what LEAF_REG_REMAP
could add to this, for one because the remapping doesn't occur
for leaf-functions. Do you mean something *like* L_R_R? If so,
I'm hesitant to introduce another macro just for the benefit of
MMIX when it can be solved by other means. The maintenance
cost, you know. ;-)
I think I'll try RTX_FRAME_RELATED_P or just a pair of unspec:s.
Hmm, how do I find the current insn to apply RTX_FRAME_RELATED_P
on, calling it from various register-number-outputting machine
macros? Ok, unspec:s it'll be, then.
