RichardS finally fixed the problem in data-flow and hence we should be
able to turn on vectorize_with_quad anyway.

Here's the patch which I thought I should have committed as a
workaround but I think it's better to split this further in the case
where the 2 registers are equal because otherwise you are pointlessly
creating a stall in the Neon pipe for the vmovn result to arrive.
Hence I'm not committing this patch.

Tests finished OK btw for this patch.
