Yeah, this is horrible.  :(  The fix we eventually want to do is to  
change VECTOR_SHUFFLE to be a variadic node where the shuffle mask is  
a list of integer operands (operands #2..2+n) instead of a  
BUILD_VECTOR.  This means that you just have to pick a legal integer  
type or use targetconstant nodes.  Thanks for adding this to
