[llvm-dev] Pre-register allocation callback

TargetPassConfig is responsible for setting up the codegen pipeline. Most of its functions can be overridden to customize it for your target. Overriding addPreRegAlloc() may be useful in your case, an alternative that would be insertPass() which allows you to insert somthing after a given pass (though that is more bittle and I'd rather recommend the override method).
