bytecode which generates incorrect code

We found this issue with the Mesa/Gallium LLVMpipe driver.

At one point we're constructing a <<8 x i16>> vector.  All elements should have
the same value.  The value comes from a scalar floating point calculation.  The
float is converted to i32 and that's trunc'd to i16 before we build the vector.

This worked with LLVM 2.7 but fails with LLVM 2.8.  We can work around the bug
by inserting a special no-op shuffle which replicates the [0] and [2] elements
to the other elements in the vector.  This shouldn't be necessary, of course.

I'm attaching the defective bytecode file and a bytecode file with our
