Dear guys,

     After compiling 188.ammp, one of spec floating point benchmarks,
using the linear scan register allocator, I got 34 spills, but only
28 store instructions. These data were given by -stats. Is this number
correct? I mean, the number of stores should be equal or greater than
the number of spills, shouldn't it?

Best regards,
