I fail to see the benefit of the movsi change.  It may also be dangerous --
at one time the movXX patterns were special in that they needed to support
all the possible movXX alternatives in a single pattern.  I do not know if
the movXX patterns are still special in that respect.

If the REG_CLASS_FROM_LETTER change is OK if it does not depend on the
movsi change.  

I'd prefer to leave movsi alone unless there is significant benefit in 
changing it -- measurable improvement across any of the 3 optimization
axis (compile time speed, generated code size, generated code speed) or
for maintenance purposes.
