This is not true anymore, it was changed in:

    modify reorder_bits to copy the MSB of the partition to each bit

    Previously, it would move the MSB to the LSB, and set the rest of the
    bits to 0.

It has become basically a "RippleMSB". Note that the previous stage
(GTCombiner) placed the result in the MSB.
