Hi All

Could you please review the VNNI VPDPWSSD instruction support with autovectorization.
It can vectorize this operation in the loop:
out[i] += ((in1[2*i] * in2[2*i]) + (in1[2*i+1] * in2[2*i+1]));
More information on VNNI can be found here:

The initial performance gains with micro on skylake with AVX3 is 10.8x.
 and it generates
vmovdqu xmm3, xmmword ptr [rbp+r8*2+0x10]
vmovdqu xmm6, xmmword ptr [rdx+r8*2+0x10]
vpmaddwd xmm3, xmm6, xmm3
vpaddd xmm3, xmm3, xmmword ptr [r9+rdi*4+0x10]
vmovdqu xmmword ptr [r9+rdi*4+0x10], xmm3

It can generate vpdpwssd instruction on cascadelake.

The webrev is here:
The jbs entry for the same is here:
