Note you can use orig_src instead of SET_SRC (*orig_set) here.

Are you sure the above is needed even for the
REGNO (new_reg) == REGNO (SET_DEST (*orig_set))
&& REGNO (new_reg) == REGNO (orig_src) case?
I mean in that case no copy insn is going to be scheduled right now, nor has
been previously scheduled, so we are back to what the code did before
r206418.  I can imagine it can be a problem, but doesn't have to be.

(set (reg:SI 3) (something:SI))
(set (reg:SI 2) (expression:SI))	// def_insn
(use (reg:SI 3))
(set (reg:DI 3) (sign_extend:DI (reg:SI 2)))

So, perhaps if we wanted to handle the HARD_REGNO_NREGS != HARD_REGNO_NREGS
case when all 3 REGNOs are the same, we'd need to limit it to the case where
cand->insn and curr_insn are in the same bb, DF_INSN_LUID of curr_insn
is smaller than DF_INSN_LUID of cand->insn and the extra hard regs aren't
used between the two.  Perhaps not worth it?

BTW, I'm surprised to hear that it triggers in the testsuite already (for
the 3 REGNOs the same case, or different?), is that on x86_64 or i?86?
Do you have an example?  I'm surprised that we'd have post reload a pattern
that extends into multiple hard registers.
