> The fix looks good, but maybe the test should be an .ir test as this probably affects other targets than MIPS too?
It can affect other targets but we can't make a generic test because the legalization settings for the target determine whether the bug is encountered. If v2i1 is legal or the legalizer widens/promotes the vector instead of splitting it, the bug won't occur.
> Also could be a candidate for 3.7.1?
Yes, I'm planning to nominate it for 3.7.1 once it's committed.
