[x86] narrow 256-bit horizontal ops via demanded elements
256-bit horizontal math ops are an x86 monstrosity (and thankfully have
not been extended to 512-bit AFAIK).
The two 128-bit halves operate on separate halves of the inputs. So if we
don't demand anything in the upper half of the result, we can extract the
low halves of the inputs, do the math, and then insert that result into a
All of the extract/insert is free (ymm<-->xmm), so we're left with a
narrower (cheaper) version of the original op.
In the affected tests based on:
...we see that the h-op narrowing can result in further narrowing of other
math via existing generic transforms.
I originally drafted this patch as an exact pattern match starting from
extract_vector_elt, but I thought we might see diffs starting from
extract_subvector too, so I changed it to a more general demanded elements
solution. There are no extra existing regression test improvements from
that switch though, so we could go back.
