this is a move-type instruction therefore never generates exceptions. this is
specifically necessary because otherwise fmvis/fishmv wouldn't be able to
encode all possible f32 sNaNs and end up with the exact same sNaN in the

fmvis/fishmv is intended as a replacement for doing a f32 load from a constant,
so being able to express sNaNs is necessary
