          Priority: P2
         Component: Backend: ARM

Currently the Thumb target reserves r3. It is not available for general
register allocation but is only used to materialize stack offsets. See

We should teach it to use the register scavenger to get a register to
materialize stack offset instead (same as ARM target). This is a critical step
towards making it a first class target.
