The issue at hand is that the base rewriting algorithm doesn't consider the fact that GEPs can turn a scalar input into a vector of outputs. We had handling for scalar GEPs and fully vector GEPs (i.e. all vector operands), but not the scalar-base + vector-index forms. A true fix here requires treating GEP analogously to extractelement or shufflevector.
This patch is merely a workaround. It simply hides the crash at the cost of some ugly code gen for this presumable very rare pattern.
