GCC includes backend support for MMIX. This work was done by Hans-Peter
Nilsson. From what I have tried it appears complete, but there is
plenty of room for improvements in the generated code. I added a few
patterns to get rid of the redundant zero-extends after LDB, LDW, etc.
but there is much more that could be done.
