[AArch64] Improve code generation of vector build

Authored by evandro on Dec 21 2017, 2:13 PM.



Instead of using, for example, dup v0.4s, wzr, which transfers between register files, use the more efficient movi v0.4s, #0 instead.

This looks good to me for Cortex cores (A57,A72), where movi and dup have the same cost, so this should be a (smallish) improvement there.

LGTM, it indeed seems like a sensible change which is confirmed by the available cost models.
