Description

TargetRegisterInfo: Add getRegAsmName()

Summary:
The motivation for this new function is to move an invalid assumption
about the relationship between the names of register definitions in
tablegen files and their assembly names into TargetRegisterInfo, so that
we can begin working on fixing this assumption.

The current problem is that if you have a register definition in
TableGen like:

def MYReg0 : Register<"r0", 0>;

The function TargetLowering::getRegForInlineAsmConstraint() derives the
assembly name from the tablegen name: "MyReg0" rather than the given
assembly name "r0". This is working, because on most targets the
tablegen name and the assembly names are case insensitive matches for
each other (e.g. def EAX : X86Reg<"eax", ...>

getRegAsmName() will allow targets to override this default assumption and
return the correct assembly name.
