Hi Bernd,

Fair enough - in which case please could you review the attached patch. 
  It changes ira-conflicts.c to use the base_reg_class() inline function 
defined in addresses.h which will use MODE_CODE_BASE_REG_CLASS if it is 
defined.  I had to guess at the parameters to pass to base_reg_class() 
but I think their exact values will not matter too much.

Tested by rebuilding a lot of toolchains[1], including bfin-elf and by 
preforming a regression test of the gcc testsuite for an 
i686-pc-linux-gnu toolchain.  (There were no regressions).

OK to apply ?
