Hi skoe, there is nothing wrong with the codegen. movw + movt pair must target
the same register. We could reuse the value of the first movw, but it requires
another copy.

    movw    r0, #32796
    mov.w    r1, #-1
    movt    r0, #20480
    str    r1, [r0]
    movw    r0, #32796    @ <= this MOVW is not needed, value is there already
    movt    r0, #20482
    str    r1, [r0]


    movw    r0, #32796
    mov  r2, r0  @ <=
    mov.w    r1, #-1
    movt    r0, #20480
    str    r1, [r0]
    movt    r2, #20482  @ <=
    str    r1, [r2]

I don't think it's any better.
