            Bug ID: 24348
           Summary: GNU (g)as is confusing about vmovdqu mnemonics
           Product: binutils
           Version: 2.30
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gas
          Assignee: unassigned at sourceware dot org
          Reporter: hgreving at google dot com
  Target Milestone: ---

1) vmovdqu %ymm0, %ymm1
as --64 -o test.o test.s
Assembles ok.

2) vmovdqu %ymm0, %ymm16
as --64 -o test.o test.s
test.s: Assembler messages:
test.s:1: Error: unsupported instruction `vmovdqu'

2) Requires the vmovdqu<8/16/32/64> mnemonic. I understand that vmovdqu is the
VEX version, while vmovdqu<8/16/32/64> encodes as EVEX. I also understand that
2) requires EVEX. However, I don't see a reason why 2) could not default to one
version of vmovdqu<8/16/32/64> with writemask k0. If it doesn't, the
consequence is that inline asm e.g. written in C needs to write vmovdqu for ymm
<= 15 and vmovsqu32 for ymm > 15. This is inconvenient e.g. for macros.

#ifdef __AVX__
vmovdqu ymm0, []
vmovdqu ymm15, []
#ifdef __AVX512F__
vmovdqu32 ymm15, []
vmovdqu32 ymm31, []
