Thanks for review. I thought THUMB1 code could not use r9. Apparently I 
was wrong. So I took a closer look at this issue. This time I found it 
was a recent regression caused by r162595 several months ago. That 
revision changed ARM port to generate pic address by using 
calculate_pic_address pattern, but didn't change 
thumb1_legitimate_address_p to accept the new address for THUMB1. The 
second issue is the split pattern does not always generate valid address 
for THUMB1. This patch should fix both issues. Regression tested on our 
internal 4.5 branch for arm-uclinuxeabi for gcc, g++ and libstdc++. The 
following FAILs are fixed:

FAIL: gcc.target/arm/pr42495.c (internal compiler error)
FAIL: gcc.target/arm/pr42495.c (test for excess errors)
FAIL: gcc.target/arm/pr42495.c scan-rtl-dump hoist "PRE/HOIST: end of bb 
.* copying expression": dump file does not exist

UNRESOLVED: gcc.target/arm/pr42574.c: error executing dg-final: couldn't

I'm lack of infrastructure to test it against FSF trunk.
