Well, no - so far the type of the variable has been sufficient to pick
a good register class.
int x, y;
addi x, y, 3
In this case Y must be class 'b', not class 'r'. Unless you're going
to just use 'b' all the time for integer types [...]
Exactamundo. :-) Sure some code could be slower because I always
use 'b' instead of choosing on a per-instruction-and-operand basis,
but I think it would take a pretty contrived example to get a
measurable speed hit.
