Your latest version fixed my multi-word test case, thanks.

However, there appears to be another problem with this code: when
using Dwarf2 exception handling, the exception 'landing pad' emits
clobber insns for the 'magic' EH_RETURN_DATA_REGNO registers,
because they will be modified by the exception handling library

However, these clobbers are removed by reload (reload removes all
clobber insns that refer to any register but the return value

Thus, the subsequent copy-propagation pass doesn't know that the
eh registers are clobbered and incorrectly reuses one of them
inside the catch block to refer to a value from the main routine;
this causes another test case failure ...
