Thanks for the great explanation!

Sorry to call out Atom. That's not actually a fair question as yeah, they will be crazy expensive there. But I don't expect any regressions based on what you said.

The level of HW you've gone back to is all I tend to care about too. I'm not seeing anyone ask for my 2004 P4 to be dusted off to benchmark llvm :)

But you can't even trigger it really from _mm_shuffle_epi32, _mm_shufflelo_epi16, or _mm_shufflehi_epi16 because those lower through generic shuffles in LLVM.... =/
