Not sure what the cost of doing it this way, but really you want all
powers of 2... and also udiv -> shr. Since this is python, should be
easy enough to append onto that list. AFAIK all GPU's prefer a shift
over a mul. Adreno doen't have 32-bit imul in the first place (and no
In nouveau/codegen we just have a single check for whether the
immediate is a power of 2, perhaps that can be encoded here in some
