Is it possible to get a virtual register and then use that to create a real register? I've seen it done in unittests/CodeGen/MachineInstrTest.cpp like this:

But when I do that in my code I get an assertion so I wasn't sure if it's legal or not.

Take a look at RegisterScavenging. Of course, this only works after
register allocation. Before register allocation you'd just create a new
