Bah, those guys don't use mathematical invariants so when they see an
instruction sequence like a Krylov method, they say there is a data
dependency and the pipeline stalls. The pipelined Krylov methods use the
structure and the choices you make affect stability. In the case of GMRES,
I think we just add an extra VecMDotBegin/End pair in with projection
against the prior Krylov space (before normalization).
