Looks good to me. Thanks for fixing this. I guess I still have more to
learn about the ISA.
However, should we not also fix the vec4 version? With that,

If we wanted to play safe and avoid the MUL, we could change it to this
and still avoid having a temporary:
/* addr = (((sampler << 8) | sampler) +
* base_binding_table_index) & 0xfff
brw_SHL(p, addr, sampler_reg, brw_imm_ud(8u));
brw_OR(p, addr, addr, sampler_reg);
I just thought the MUL trick was more fun. I'm not sure which would be
faster. The SHL+OR might take up fewer clock cycles but it also
introduces a bubble because it is writing to a register and then
immediately reading from it in the next instruction.
On the other hand it's probably really not worth worrying about
optimising this bit of code because literally nothing is using it in
shader-db. We can just go with whatever works.
