A register-class will match anything with the appropriate type (i32
here). The idea is that any value of that type can be put into a
register somehow, and matching whatever it happens to be (a FrameIndex
in this case) is exactly what's needed to do that.

Ah good, this is what I thought was probably happening so it's nothing
exotic. You need to be able to match a FrameIndex somehow. Not just
for this, but for something like:

    void foo() {
      int arr[5];

It's pretty simple to implement matching, you generally just need to
convert it to some add instruction that can do SP+imm. See for example
