> When constructing input vector use type of vector's operation which use it since element's sizes should match. In the bug case byte value is used for initialization of int array. The store vector is Store2I and input's type (byte) was used to construct init vector but there is no Replicate2B. Even if Replicate2B existed it will be wrong since it initialize only lowest 2 bytes.
Why does in_bb(opd) ever affect which type to use?
