No.  You're papering over the problem with %l7.  You need
to use a scheme more like powerpc or x86 in which you track
current_function_uses_pic_offset_table during reload.

As for the optimization, you must be missing something wrt
LEGITIMATE_CONSTANT_P or something.  Reload shouldn't have
wanted to dump the constant to memory in the first place;
you should not have to fish it out of the constant pool.
