   -	  if (!alpha_noat_on && num == AXP_REG_AT)
   +	  if (!alpha_noat_on && (num + is_float) == AXP_REG_AT)

is_float is a terrible name for this variable, since the name implies
a boolean value.  I believe the patch is correct.  If the variable
were named something like regnum_offset or float_regnum_offset it
would be clearly correct.
