I've gone ahead and added that in r106433 and it passes the testcase in a few different codegen modes, but don't have any way of testing on linux at the moment so if you can test the codegen that would be appreciated.

Actually, now llc works with the testcase but the generated code is 
wrong if you try to compile it with "as".

$ as select.s
select.s: Assembler messages:
select.s:8: Error: relocated field and relocation type differ in signedness

8:        movl    $tm_nest_level at TPOFF, %ecx
9:        movq    %fs:0, %rax

This is why I set MOV64ri32 and not MOV64ri64i32 in my patch (thus this 
is why I asked for correctness).

Thank you,
