Here's a quick sketch of how this might work for an
Tell instruction selection that there's an add instruction that
operates from registers, in addition to the one that takes an
operand from memory. Do this for all similar instructions. Run the
optimizer and codegen. Since there's only one physical register, any
time there are two distinct virtual registers being used by a single
instruction, one of them will need to be spilled, and the reload can
be folded into the instruction.
It would be worthwhile to see if anyone has done this kind of thing
