[LLVMdev] Inconsistency in the LLVM docs

The 'inttoptr' instruction takes an integer<http://llvm.org/docs/LangRef.html#t_integer> value to cast, and a type to cast it to, which must be a pointer<http://llvm.org/docs/LangRef.html#t_pointer> type.

The final example is:
%Z = inttoptr <4 x i32> %G to <4 x i8*>; yields truncation of vector G to four pointers

The result is not a pointer type, but a vector of pointer types. This violates the restriction of the arguments.

Is this an overview, or should this instruction type be illegal?
