I think the code should instead be a fused addition and truncation,
a bit like FMA is a fused addition and multiplication. Describing it as
a DFmode addition followed by some conversion to SF would still involve
simplify-rtx.c is probably the most important place to handle it.
It would be easiest to test using the selftests at the end of the file.
