    IMHO this patch is a bad idea, and we should change the PA port instead.
    These special cases for one particular port will make gcc much less
    maintainable in the long run.

You misunderstand.  This is quite general code to set REGNO_POINTER_FLAG
and record alignment information for more pseudos.  It will help in
optimization for *any* machine.  The only thing unique about the PA port
here is that it's also needed there to avoid an ICE.
