Subject: [PATCH] Lower certain build_vectors to insertps instructions

Hi nadav, delena, craig.topper,

Vectors built with zeros and elements in the same order as another
(source) vector are optimized to be built using a single insertps instruction.

Further optimizations are possible, described in TODO comments.
I will be implementing at least some of them in the near future.

Added some tests for different cases where this optimization triggers.
