I assumed that if its ok to avoid this code in that case then it should be ok to avoid it here too. However, I'm happy to be proved wrong and learn more about the register allocator.
The code below will detect if the live range separates into multiple connected components, and create new virtual registers for the new components. That should always happen whether a VRM needs to be updated or not.
The machine code verifier will complain about virtual registers with multiple connected components. The special case for the spiller only works because the spiller is about to eliminate those virtual registers anyway.
You shouldn't use the VRM pointer to change the behavior of LRE, just change whether it updates VRM itself.
