      Description

      The vextract and vinsert methods in assembler and macroAssembler should be ordered consistently.

      One suggested ordering is to group all the vextract methods and sort them on size within the group. The vinsert methods would form a separate group, also sorted by size. This would/could loosely correspond to the order of the instructions in the Intel Architecture Instruction Set manual.

      There may be other orders worth evaluating.
