[LLVMdev] Still Another LiveInterval Question

Ok, so I'm delving much more deeply into this stuff. :)
On a target like x86, is it true to say that for virtual registers post
phi-elimination, the only time their live intervals should have more than one
value number is if they participate in 2-address instructions where a copy had
to be introduced to satisfy the read-write requirements of the instruction?
And further, in that case, LiveIntervals for virtual registers should only
have at most two value numbers?
How about on targets without these reuiqrements? Should LiveIntervals for
virtual registers only ever have one value number?
