Perhaps aarch64 is confusing for you. But Alpha also has zero registers, and
also uses wrapper functions. See load_gpr and dest_gpr.
The very most important reason to use a wrapper, and thus a tcg temporary that
keeps getting re-initialized to zero, is that the tcg optimizer gets to see
that zero and optimize the code accordingly.
