Revision r172868: "On Sandybridge loading unaligned 256bits using two XMM loads
(vmovups and vinsertf128) is faster than using a single vmovups instruction."
increases register pressure, which becomes critical in case of multiple loads.
This shows up on many ISPC tests with total test slow down up to 1.5x (due to
increased number of spill/fills).

An attached example is extracted from one of these tests and demonstrated the

I don't know how much faster loading through XMM on Sandybridge is, but in case
of multiple loads it's surely isn't.
