problems with vector code

sorry, I didn't have altivec enabled and didn't know that it has to be
enabled also for cl style vector casts.
therefore (float4)(a,b,c,d) compiles comma operators, i.e. (float4)(d).

...which is not would you expect when you explicitly request
AltiVec-support! (Hence my bug report:

This has also reminded me of another gripe I have.

Could anyone tell me please why Clang compiles this

typedef float float4 __attribute__((ext_vector_type(4)));
float4 vadd4(float4 a, float4 b) { return a+b; }


define <2 x double> @vadd4(<2 x double>, <2 x double>) nounwind {


Note that <4 x float> is converted to <2 x double> even when
cgOpts.OptimizationLevel=0, cgOpts.DisableLLVMOpts=1. But e.g. float17
compiles as expected?
