[AArch64] Fix useful bits detection for BFM instructions

Authored by sbaranga on Nov 25 2016, 6:52 AM.



When computing useful bits for a BFM instruction, we need
to take into consideration the case where both operands
of the BFM are equal and provide data that we need to track.

Not doing this can cause us to miss useful bits.

This is looking great. We already verified that the patch resolves the original bug that was reported.


Should all these values be renamed to something more clear? For example, this is probably better as %shr47. Several other long value names below could similarly be improved.

Update variable names names in the test and make it more readable overall.

Thanks for cleaning up the names in the test. I would prefer someone more familiar with this backend to approve it, but everything looks great now.
