cmd/compile: stack offsets should not need spilling #22947

Compiling the function below currently produces a register spill:

package p

type T [100]int

func f(p *T) {
    if g() {
            h(0, *p)
    } else {
            h(1, *p)

func g() bool
func h(int, T)

This is because h(1, *p) is compiled to OINDREGSP(8) = *p, which is represented in SSA as Move(OffPtr(8, SP), p).

OffPtr(8, SP) is trivially rematerialized on x86 with LEA $8(SP), but we're currently lowering OffPtr to ADDQconst, which is marked as non-rematerializeable because it clobbers flags (unlike LEAQ).

Distilled from #22558.

We can probably add a rule that transforms (ADDQconst (SP)) into LEAQ
