Register Allocation

Michael Lucas-Smith calculates the methods that can use register allocation effectively...

I put in italics the methods that would require a spill object. Only 0.37% of methods in the system will spill!. Clearly this indicates that the technique will work even on a system with 8 registers like an x86.

I think that is to some degree optimistic since no registers will be left on the x86 for intermediates.
