All I see on Intel is whole vector register shifts (and like on many other
ports and/or/xor/andn could be considered whole register too).
And, even if your port has 256-bit integer arithmetics, there is no mangling
for __int256_t or similar, so I don't see how you can offer such data type
as supported in the 4.8 timeframe.
