Attached patch arm-assertions.patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Following bug 915495, comment 20, some assertions showed up on ARM after the Float32 landing.

The assertions during Lowering weren't taking into account whether the frontend can generate Float32 or not.
Doug, could you check that it solves most of the jit-test failures on ARM, please? I will flag for review only if it's the case.

Looks like a useful improvement, thank you.  Re-ran all the failing tests
in this class and they all either pass or fail for other reasons now.  

In particular:

tests/basic/testTypedArrays.js now crashes trying to re-target a near branch.

tests/jaeger/testSetTypedFloatArray.js now crashes due to failure of the
constant pools which bails out and cause a subsequent assertion failure.

tests/ion/setelem-float32-typedarray-ic.js is still failing with numerical
Attached patch fixSplinter Review
- Fixes assertions by checking that we can actually emit Float32.
- Fixes a case where a conversion to Float was done twice, on ARM (IonCaches).

Looks good!

An aside: I wonder if we should do some refactoring to unify the use of ScalarTypeRepresentation in typed array (and soon, typed object) related code to determine the action over MIRType?
