Jim is correct, except for one minor nit.

REG_N_REFS must never be zero if references to the register still
remain in the insn chain.  Other than that, REG_N_REFS can have
any value without effecting the correctness of the generated code.

Of course accurate REG_N_REFS is likely to lead to better register
allocation.
