[PATCH] [AArch64] enable rematerialization of float 0 values

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the feedback, I've incorporated your suggestions.

I'm working on a test case, but I'm having trouble creating a FMOV 0 live range in IR that lives across a point in the code where I can insert inline asm to force it to be spilled.
If I try using a phi(0.0, x) to create the live range, the problem is I can't insert the inline asm to force a spill between the phi and the end of the predecessor where the COPY will be inserted.

Do you have any other ideas for generating a FMOV 0 that I can force to be spilled?

The idea of a more targeted pseudo-instruction is probably a good one.
But that particular implementation creates loads of heavy-weight Pseudo-instructions (encoding info, asm info, ...), most of which are never used.

I'd suggest something along the lines of:

let isReMaterializable = 1, isCodeGenOnly = 1 in {

def FMOVS0: Pseudo<(outs FPR32:$Rd), (ins), [(set f32:$Rd, (fpimm0))]>,
      PseudoInstExpansion<(FMOVWSr FPR32:$Rd, WZR)>,

<similar FMOVD0>

Also, there's still no test.
