           Summary: [AVX] vector comparisons are scalarized
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: new bugs
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: matt at pharr.org
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu


define <8 x i1> @foo___ff(<8 x float> %a, <8 x float> %b) nounwind readnone {
  %bincmp = fcmp olt <8 x float> %a, %b
  ret <8 x i1> %bincmp

llc -mattr=+avx emits a ton of vector extracts, scalar floating-point compares,
and vector inserts to compute the final result.  (The same is true of integer
compares as well.)

It would be nice for it to emit the single corresponding AVX vector compare
instruction instead.
