I think this requires more experimentation. It creates a bunch more intermediate operations and vregs. The common case should be 3->4 elements, with matching offsets which should fold away easily.

For now most of the legalizations for merge/unmerge are missing so I think this might not work around at the moment.

At this point I'm not expecting any of the legalization actions for sub-32 bit types to be perfectly accurate. Most of the legalizations are missing, and I'm not sure what the optimal end state looks like yet (such as whether it's better to promote elements first or split the vector). For now I've just been putting placeholders that will make use of what's implemented.

My intention was to legalize from 3->4 elements for this. When there are actual optimizations, the undef 4th component should be eliminated if this does end up promoted to 32-bits.

We have legal s16 and v2s16 ops on some subtargets, so it makes sense to treat those as just rounded to integer sized vectors. I'm less sure what should happen for 8-bit elements at this point, but for now I'm trying to keep them packed and follow along with the 16-bit vectors.
