I should've read the patch first.  Of course splitting the move late is
not preserving any CSE.  (i tought you was inventing the constant for
fabs late).

One problem is medium model that needs temporary integer register for
accessing constpool, however I am already having patch in testing that
adds small data area.  Having that we should be safe until we start
poking around large model but I don't see real need to implement it.
