I am seeing the same thing.  The issues is basically that after the
no_new_pseudoes change mips_split_symbol through mips_force_temporary
will create new pseudos during combine.  The regnumber of these regs
will address out of the reg_stat array in combine.

This is incorrect as in combine you are supposed to use the scratch
register that combine provides through a clobber clause which AFAIK is
always an existing pseudo.  I am planning to fix this by changing
mips_split_symbol to use the scratch register instead of a new pseudo
when invoked from a splitter.  I will try to get the patch tested
