[copying gcc@ because of the syntax stuff]

for example with (leaving captures as the appear in the pattern above)

   (plus (convert@2 (lshift (convert@0 X) CNT1))
           (convert (rshift (convert@1 X) CNT2)))
    /* Types T2 have to match */
   (if (types_compatible_p (TREE_TYPE (@0), TREE_TYPE (@1))
        /* Type T should be unsigned.  */
       && TYPE_UNSIGNED (TREE_TYPE (@2))
       /* T2 should be wider than T.  */
       /* CNT1 + CNT2 == B */
       && wi::eq_p (TYPE_PRECISION (TREE_TYPE (@2)),
                           wi::add (CNT1, CNT2))))
   (lrotate CNT1))

which suggests that we may want to add some type capturing / matching
so we can maybe write

  (plus (convert@T (lshift (convert@T2 X) CNT1))
          (convert (rshift (convert@T2 X) CNT2)))
  (if (/* T2s will be matched automagically */
       && TYPE_UNSIGNED (@T)
       && wi::eq_p (TYPE_PRECISION (@T), wi::add (CNT1, CNT2))))

which is less to type and supports requiring matching types.  Maybe
require @T[0-9]+ here thus use @T0 and disallow plain @T.  We could
then also use @T for the implicitely "captured" outermost type we
refer to as plain 'type' right now.

I suggest to go ahead without a new syntax for now and see if it
gets unwieldingly ugly without first.

Just keep an eye open for things like above - easy ways to reduce
typing for patterns.

Btw, I suggest to split up match.pd by code you converted from.  Thus
for simplify_rotate add


with the patterns and do a #include "match-simplify-rotate.pd"
in match.pd.  That will make it easier to match the two later.
