Actually I just realized that the StackMapLiveness pass uses LivePhysRegs after prologue/epilogue insertion; At a first glance I'd say this is a bug and will miss the pristine registers (though I'm not sure what the repercussions are if pristine regs are missed in patchpoint instruction (or maybe someone adjust for that somewhere else in the code).
