Re: [PATCH PR62011]

For example, for the first loop for attached test-case we do not
prepend xor to popcnt because of using destination register:

leal 1(%rdx), %ecx
popcntq (%rbx,%rax,8), %rax
leal 2(%rdx), %r8d
popcntq (%rbx,%rcx,8), %rcx
addq %rax, %rcx
leal 3(%rdx), %esi
xorq %rax, %rax
popcntq (%rbx,%r8,8), %rax
addq %rax, %rcx
xorq %rax, %rax
popcntq (%rbx,%rsi,8), %rax
addq %rax, %rcx
leal 4(%rdx), %eax
addq %rcx, %r14
movq %rax, %rdx
cmpq %rax, %r12
ja .L23
