We can do whatever we want here since the ABI says <3 x double> should be returned in memory, but I don't like this very much. I agree with Chris that it would be good for codegen to do something sane in this case, but I'm not really sure what that should be. If the frontend didn't provide an sret argument, with stack space in the caller, we can't even return the value in memory, can we?
Yes, it will do the same thing for any double vector of size greater than 3. It would be better if the code generator didn't hit the llvm_unreachable, but at what size do we draw the line? I'm not sure.
