StrongPHIElimination is getting fast enough that total compile time is just noise, but I'd like to investigate why there isn't as much of a speedup in coalescing as I would expect.

You may want to get some numbers from the ARM target as well. X86 has lots of copies from two-address instructions.

You could probably save some code size by using ADT/EquivalenceClasses.h. I don't know how that implementation performs, though.
