            Bug ID: 3392752
           Summary: Pextrb and Pinsrb accept different arguments
           Product: NASM
           Version: 2.13.xx
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: OPEN
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: Assembler
          Assignee: nobody at nasm.us
          Reporter: philiprbrenan at gmail.com

     Obtained from: Binary from nasm.us

Pextrb will accept this:

  Pextrb rsi, xmm0, 0 ; Extract lowest byte in xmm0 and put it in rsi           

Pinserb (according to nasm) requires a byte register:

  Pinsrb xmm0, sil, 0 ; Set lowest byte in xmm0

However, page: 


insdicates that any r64 register will do.  Is it possible that nasm is
reporting "invalid combination of operands" incorrectly here"?
