It is the scalar replacement of aggregates pass that puts everything into
registers when sp is a local array.  What happens is: the tail recursion in
wf is eliminated.  wf is inlined into g.  scalarrepl turns the (local) array
accesses in g into registers.  Once everything is in registers, later passes
clean everything up.
