I was talking about what addresses are allowed by
the TARGET_LEGITIMATE_ADDRESS_P, not what the hardware implements or
what the register allocator is guided to produce; some optimizers can
get quite 'creative' in mashing rtl together.

Considering the following stanza from m32c_legitimate_address_p,
I don't see how it would reject
   (reg:CC SP_REGNO)
   (cond_exec:V2HI (pc:SC)
                   (if_then_else:PSI (scratch:BLK) (reg 4004) (return:QI))))

   /* allowing PLUS yields mem:HI(plus:SI(mem:SI(plus:SI in m32c_split_move */
   if (GET_CODE (x) == PRE_DEC
       || GET_CODE (x) == POST_INC || GET_CODE (x) == PRE_MODIFY)
       return (GET_CODE (XEXP (x, 0)) == REG
               && REGNO (XEXP (x, 0)) == SP_REGNO);
