[LLVMdev] LLVM ERROR: ran out of registers during register allocation

Ok, I've found that marking tiny live intervals as not spillable inside
VirtRegAuxInfo::CalculateWeightAndHint is not playing nicely with very
constrained regclasses, in my case a regclass composed of only one
As a workaround, instead of marking them as not spillable, I've marked them
with a very high spill cost and the regalloc is able to compile the
function with good code quality. To avoid doing this for all live intervals
of this regclass, I'm filtering only the ones that dont have a small size
(returned by li.getSize())
Does this possible cause make any sense at all?
In either case, in the meantime, I can live with this workaround until an
official fix is implemented. I'll fill in a bug report to track this
problem so you can take a look at it when appropiate.
