            Bug ID: 17236
           Summary: missed opportunity to use vector FMA instruction
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: Loop Optimizer
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
          Reporter: kkhoo at perfwizard.com
                CC: llvmbugs at cs.uiuc.edu
    Classification: Unclassified

I think this problem is similar to bug 17172. For a short vector, the SLP
vectorizer is not recognizing an FMA operation as a vector candidate?
