You may also want to examine the architecture of the (now obsolete?)
Intel i860 processor, which exposed the VLIW-like interior of the FPU
for explicit assembly-language use.
Some very clever algorithms were developed to take advantage of this
No references handy, but I believe they are catalogued in the various
