Given a source program fragment like this:
int i;
for (i = 0; i < 10; i++)

After SSA transformation and back, we have

i = 0;
i1 = i;
      i2 = i1+1;
      i1 = i2;
if (i2 < 10) goto top;

The problem now is that there are 2 variables inside the loop, i1 and i2
with overlapping lifetimes, thus using more registers and causing extra
register moves at code generation time. Is there something we can do to
address this problem?

Thanks for any hints and pointers!
