It feels like we may have been missing a SVE test before for the case when IndexVT=<vscale x 4 x i32> and DataVT=<vscale x 4 x i64>. This is a hole that you've fixed, but no tests broke. :)


Given we can have types such as <vscale x 3 x > is it worth changing this to

DataVT.getVectorMinNumElements() >= 4

I guess such types will be widened to the next power of 2, but it looks like we might call this before legalisation?

vscale x 4 x i64 isn't a legal type so this line doesn't have much of a visible effect for scalable vectors. It's just going to stop us from removing an extend that we'll later re-add during type legalisation. After which DataVT will be vscale x 2 x i64 and so the original >=4 clause would have kicked in.


The <vscale x 3 x ...> case is why I changed from the original >=4 to >2 because as you say, it'll be widened to the next power of 2 (i.e. 4) and thus can benefit from the 32bit addressing modes.

LGTM! Some nice codegen improvements. :)
