Is it possible to have RegMask at fixed position in Operands array in MI? Also provide some more details on updating cached RegMask in various other class.

I expect your code to be the only user of such a function so I would not add it to MachineInstr but keep the code local in your pass for now (you can add a static helper function in the .cpp file of your pass).
