The isel logs are exactly the same, nothing changed, it's matching the same
instructions just the reg classes are different.
Where in the SelectionDAG is the code that adds an extra MI COPY? I'll have
to set a breakpoint and debug backwards from there to see what's going on.
It's only happening with the GPRRegs class, for example if I use another
reg class instead along with the base regs than it matches the base reg
just fine, it's like GPR is overriding any other reg class matching.
