Generally, it is desirable to distribute (a + b) * c to a*c + b*c on
ARM with VMLx Forwarding, where a,b and c are vectors.
However, for (a + b)*(a + b), distribution will result in one extra
With distrution:
x = a + b (vadd)
y = a * x (vmul)
z = y + b * y (vmla)

Without distribution:
x = a + b (vadd)
z = x * x (vmul)
