Probably those other SENDs always operate with a width of 8/16 (the
default) and don't need to be fixed for other cases because they don't
happen. Notice that we are only trying to fix the cases of width = 4
here, which are the conflicting ones, so if some paths never execute
instructions with a width of 4 we don't need to do anything about them.
What we have done to identify the cases that need fixing was adding this
assertion in brw_set_dest (brw_eu_emit.c):
assert(dest.width != BRW_EXECUTE_4 ||
brw_inst_exec_size(devinfo, inst) == dest.width);
That catches any instruction with a width of 4 (the ones that need
fixing) that does not have the correct execsize set. We ran this through
piglit and dEQP functional's tests for all the generations we mentioned
and fixed the cases that broke this assertion one by one.
