Code in config/aarch64 needs to work with SVE, where TYPE_VECTOR_SUBPARTS
isn't necessarily a compile-time constant.

If the code you're adding is inherently specific to Advanced SIMD
(not sure, but guessing yes based on this being aarch64-builtins.c)
then like Kugan says, using to_constant is OK.

Which code are you copying over?
