Likely, after transformations and intra-procedural analyses, gcc would
end up with the same.


 for (i = I387_ST0_REGNUM (tdep); i < I387_XMM0_REGNUM (tdep); i++)

always iterates exactly 16 times, because I387_XMM0_REGNUM
is defined like:

 #define I387_XMM0_REGNUM(tdep) (I387_ST0_REGNUM (tdep) + 16)

An alternative I think might work would be to give that magic
16 constant a name, say:

 #define I387_NUM_ST_REGS 16

and then do:

 for (i = 0; i < i < I387_NUM_ST_REGS; i++)
      int r = I387_ST0_REGNUM (tdep) + i;

      ... use 'r' instead of 'i' ...
