We don't represent some of these at this level, like vertical stride.
When we're assembling instructions later (in brw_eu_emit.c:gen6_math
and gen8_generator.cpp:gen8_generator::math which should be going away
soon) we have a bunch of assertions that verify these restrictions. It
looks like you're right that we don't have asserts to check the Gen7
restrictions, and our asserts in the Gen8 code seem to be lacking the
check you mentioned below.

Thanks for the review and the good question.
