These intrinsics take a vector of 2n elements, and return a vector of
n wider elements obtained by sign- or zero-extending every other
element of the input vector. They're represented in IR as a
shufflevector that extracts the odd or even elements of the input,
followed by a sext or zext.
Existing LLVM codegen already matches this pattern and generates the
VMOVLB instruction (which widens the even-index input lanes). But no
existing isel rule was generating VMOVLT, so I've added some. However,
the new rules currently only work in little-endian MVE, because the
pattern they expect from isel lowering includes a bitconvert which
doesn't have the right semantics in big-endian.
The output of one existing codegen test is improved by those new
This commit adds the unpredicated forms only.
