            Bug ID: 1071
           Summary: maybe add parallel prefix sum remap mode
           Product: Libre-SOC's first SoC
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: CONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: ---
         Component: Specification

   NLnet milestone: ---

parallel prefix sum (also known as `scan`) is a commonly useful operation,
since there's space in remap modes (mode 0b11) now that some were removed I
think we should add it.

some of the applications of parallel prefix sum:
* Counting sort/Radix sort (the most common sorting algorithm used on GPUs)
* Decoding Grey code
* Parallel Polynomial Interpolation
* Computing Factorials (prefix-product of 1,2,3,4,...)
