Ugh. I just found another case I don't think we can synthesize in asmprinter.
We mark rematerialized instructions as well so our performance guys don't come
and ask us why we didn't hoist saomething out of a loop. :)
We're also a bit more expressive in our spill/reload marking. For example,
we're mark whether a spill or reload was merged with another instruction
and mark copy instructions that were inserted because the spiller could
reuse a previous reload. These are all extra things the spiller inserts. We
might be able to get folded spill/reload information synthesized by looking
at MachineOperands but I don't think we can get reuse copies or rematted
Would it be acceptable to add a small flags field to MachineInstr that we
can use as a bitvector?
