They both(Repl4B_mem vs loadB+Repl4B ) would be same in this case. May be we can remove the memory variants as the current memory variants are not correct.
I can prepare a patch according to that.

What's the benefit of keeping those memory variants now and not simply rely on a pair of load + replicate instructions to match (ReplicateB (LoadB mem)) (e.g., Repl4B_mem vs loadB+Repl4B)?
