/// This file implements the LivePhysRegs utility for tracking liveness of
/// physical registers. This can be used for ad-hoc liveness tracking after
/// register allocation. You can start with the live-ins/live-outs at the
/// beginning/end of a block and update the information while walking the
/// instructions inside the block. This implementation tracks the liveness on a
/// sub-register granularity.
/// We assume that the high bits of a physical super-register are not preserved
/// unless the instruction has an implicit-use operand reading the super-
/// register.
/// X86 Example:
/// %ymm0 = ...
/// %xmm0 = ... (Kills %xmm0, all %xmm0s sub-registers, and %ymm0)
/// %ymm0 = ...
/// %xmm0 = ..., implicit %ymm0 (%ymm0 and all its sub-registers are alive)
