Both match the type of another intrinsic parameter of a vector type, but where each element is subdivided to form a vector with more elements of a smaller type.
Subdivide2Argument allows intrinsics such as the following to be defined:
- declare <vscale x 4 x i32> @llvm.something.nxv4i32(<vscale x 8 x i16>)
Subdivide4Argument allows intrinsics such as:
- declare <vscale x 4 x i32> @llvm.something.nxv4i32(<vscale x 16 x i8>)
Tests are included in follow up patches which add intrinsics using these types.
