BTW, this should be good for about a 5-6% improvement in compile time.   I
didn't do a strict before/after test, but the times after all yesterday's
changes into the mainline are a good 6% better than the times from Thursday
for my suite of tests.

There's still some sillyness going on rtl-generation wise, but it looks a
lot better now.  There's still one obvious place that's creating lots of
unnecessary REGs -- around a million or so in init_alias_analysis (the
more arg registers you have the worse it gets, the million number is for
12 argument registers).

reload_cse_simplify_operands also breaks the million mark for creating 
registers, but it's less clear if those are necessary or not (I'll be
checking shortly).
