If you can make sense of this

	.intel_syntax noprefix
	# Misplaced rounding identifiers (belong after eax); similar in disassembler
	vcvtsi2ss	xmm0, xmm0, {rn-sae}, eax
	vcvtusi2ss	xmm0, xmm0, {rn-sae}, eax

	# Disp8 scaled by 8 rather than 4
	vpmuldq		zmm0, zmm0, [edx+4]{1to8}
	vpmuldq		zmm0, zmm0, [edx+8]{1to8}
	vpmuludq	zmm0, zmm0, [edx+4]{1to8}
	vpmuludq	zmm0, zmm0, [edx+8]{1to8}

	# Disp8 disassembly scaled by 8 rather than 4
	vgatherqps	ymm1{k1}, [eax+zmm0+4]
	vpgatherqd	ymm1{k1}, [eax+zmm0+4]
	vpscatterqd	[eax+zmm0+4]{k1}, ymm0
	vscatterqps	[eax+zmm0+4]{k1}, ymm0

	# destination and index the same being accepted
	vgatherqps	ymm0{k1}, [eax+zmm0]
	vpgatherqd	ymm0{k1}, [eax+zmm0]

- I don't have the time right now to go into much detail here, not
to speak of enter bugs. The disassembly issue I have a 2.24-based
fix for:

Of course that also requires testsuite adjustments, and I didn't get
around to do and test all this on master yet.

You seem to still not fully understand: BOUND/ENTER are the ones
that are correctly handled. Other (newer) instructions with only (or
multiple) source operands are the ones where sloppiness in coding/
understanding lead to inconsistent behavior.
