SelectionDAGBuilder creates INTRINSIC_W_CHAIN, INTRINSIC_WO_CHAIN, or INTRINSIC_VOID nodes. You want to emit those with the intrinsic ID as a TargetConstant the first operand (or second with chains). I would recommend though for these cases, if you want to emit emit them in the backend, it’s a bit nicer to lower these to a custom node, and select on that. It’s a bit nicer than having to add the intrinsic ID everywhere. Most of the AMDGPU intrinsics are handled this way.
