[PATCH] MachineFrameInfo: Simplify pristine register calculation.

About pristine regsiters:
Pristine registers "hold a value that is useless to the current
function, but that must be preserved - they are callee saved registers
that have not been saved." This concept saves compile time as it frees
the prologue/epilogue inserter from adding every such register to every
basic blocks live-in list.
However the current code in getPristineRegs is formulated in a
complicated way: Inside the function prologue and epilogue all callee
saves are considered pristine, while in the rest of the code only the
non-saved ones are considered pristine. This requires logic to
differentiate between prologue/epilogue and the rest and in the presence
of shrink-wrapping this even becomes complicated/expensive. It's also
unnecessary because the prologue epilogue inserters already mark
callee-save registers that are saved/restores properly in the respective
blocks in the prologue/epilogue (see updateLiveness() in
PrologueEpilogueInserter.cpp). So only declaring non-saved/restored
callee saved registers as pristine just works.
