Re: [eigen] Altivec port status, bugs fixed

Hi Konstantinos,

Thank you for looking at it.

I've tested the Altivec support a few months ago using the GCC's compile farm after we introduced several new vectorization functions. So the situation should not be too bad.

So I just cloned a recent master branch of eigen and tried
running the tests with Altivec enabled. Both good and bad news, it
branch still compiles, almost all tests pass, but 2 fail, one of them
being vectorization_logic. I guess it will be something easy to fix. I
will look into this and will commit a fix when I fix it, and will try
to add VSX support while I'm at it, as I'm testing on a Power7.

That's probably a shortcoming in vectorization_logic itself. Perhaps that one is already fixed by the very recent Christoph's change?

What's the second one?
