Unfortunately predicates only work during matching. We need to pass opcode of ideal node to Matcher::match_rule_supported().

Any following arithmetic operation may produce result which will not fit into value of the original type. Because of that right shift vector operations produce incorrect result when they operate on not just loaded data.
