If you do add types to TGSI registers, it's worth noting that the
internal IR used by glsl_to_tgsi (glsl_to_tgsi_instruction) already the
types of all src and dst registers, and it's only lost when converting
that to TGSI.  However, it was only intended to be good enough to
determine whether to emit an integer or float instruction, so there
might be some mistakes remaining somewhere that would need to be corrected.
