Just realised I didn't actually answer your question after that
explanation. Something like this should work:

BuildMI(MBB, MBBI, dl, TII.get(X86::MOV32mi))

All the operands are outside the BuildMI because the register operand
you often put inside is actually one the function defines, but this
store doesn't actually change RDI itself.

(You may want to add a RegState::Kill if that's the last use of RDI).
