If an op with dead outputs is not removed, because it has side effects
or has multiple output arguments and only one dead, mark the TCG 
registers as dead instead of keeping them allocated. This avoid a few 
register spills on TCG targets with low register count, especially with
div2 and mul2 ops, or when a qemu_ld* result is not used (prefetch 
emulation for example).
