It’s testing the underlying operation in the compiler exposed by using the basic bit operations, the fact that there isn’t an explicit CL operation called sign extend is irrelevant. Skipping these on other platforms would be a mistake. The s_/v_ distinction is to emphasize that it is stressing the scalar operators which the standard conformance tests will not do.There are more tests because of the emphasize on stressing the GCN compiler parts, but nothing about it is specific.
