It doesn't actually do anything useful.

All it does is, for a subset of inputs, force the address into
a register.  This is the same as the fallback action.  That is,
any non-legitimate address is forced into a register.

A more useful version of legitimize_address would be to split
a large offset into two pieces, the large one to be CSE'd and
the small one that fits into a memory offset.

E.g. the following with which I was experimenting.
