Sigh, indeed.  C++ seems to do, and in any case it would be more 
consistent to do it also for globals.  Maybe Joseph knows why C doesn't do

Yeah, some of them use DECL_REGISTER because they want to handle global 
reg vars (which always have a hard-reg associated, as otherwise the 
register storage class is only valid for locals), and are posed with the 
above problem.  But some seem to really want DECL_HARD_REGISTER.
