[AMDGPU] Whole Quad Mode variant of mov.dpp intrinsic

Authored by dstuttard on Jun 27 2017, 3:38 AM.



Added an extra intrinsic (based on the non-wqm version)
that enables WQM.
This is required for shaders to implement functions such as dpdx using dpp.

Added some simple tests based on mov.dpp intrinsic tests, plus a new dpdx
function style test.

I think we will require a more extensive change to properly support WQM and all it can do. However, this is a minor extension to an existing intrinsic that allows implementation of functions required in some shader implementations.
This can be removed if necessary if more fully featured support is implemented.

Yes, lgtm as a temporary thing pending a decision on how we support dpp, wqm and wwm properly.

It would be better to structure this similarly to how the other WQM mode instructions are already handled. This is adding another encoded instruction which we don't want.

Sure - which WQM mode instruction were you thinking would be a better model?

I just posted D35167, which seems closer to how we want to deal with WQM and WWM in the long term, and should provide the same functionality as this intrinsic.

Agreed - @cwabbott your changes provide something much more complete than this change, plus remove the need for it. Thanks.
