It's a serious bug in LLVM's MMX support, and it's also reported as PR1838.
It's been open for a long time, and to date no one has stepped forward to fix

If you have a front-end which wants to emit vector code and not care about the
capabilities of the target, the -disable-mmx option is highly recommended. With
this option, <2 x i32> vectors are handled in SSE registers, with the compiler
doing all the bookkeeping necessary.

I agree that this state of affairs is not ideal, but LLVM is attempting to meet
the needs of several different classes of users, with drastically different
