To check I understand: am I right in thinking you want:
(A) the numbers in the dump to be unmodified when dumping, so that we
can easily look up values in arrays without confusion, and
(B) regnums in the dump gain a 'p' prefix for values >=
 FIRST_PSEUDO_REGISTER, so that humans and parsers can easily see when
the regs are pseudos, and that
(C) the parser will detect if a 'p'-prefixed regno actually has the
same number as a hard reg (which can happen e.g. when a .md file
changes, or when sharing .rtl dumps between targets), and remap the
values on load accordingly


(in which case we do need the regno_remapper class, or something like

Presumably we could use "v" rather than "p" as the prefix for the first
5 pseudos (up to LAST_VIRTUAL_REGISTER), doing any adjustment at load
time, rather than at dump time.  So the above example would look like:

   (reg/f:DI v82 virtual-stack-vars)

i.e. the 82 for x86_64's virtual-stack-vars would be prefixed with a
'v', and the loader would adjust it to be the current target's value

Do you like the idea of prefixing regnums of hardregs with 'h'? (so
that all regnos get a one-char prefix) e.g.
  (reg/i:SI h0 ax)
  (reg/i:SF h21 xmm0)
