Thanks for your great work. I have applied all the patches of the series
except the following ones, for which I have already send comments:

- Add GEN_VXRFORM{, 1} macros for subsequent instructions.
- Add vcmpequ{b, h, w} and vcmpgt{s, u}{b, h, w} instructions.
- Add m{f,t}vscr instructions.
- Add v{add, sub}{s, u}{b, h, w}s instructions.
- Add vs{l,r} instructions.
- Add vspltis{b,h,w} instructions.
