LASTB (scalar)

Extract last element to general-purpose register.

If there is an active element then extract the last active element from the final source vector register. If there are no active elements, extract the highest-numbered element. Then zero-extend and place the extracted element in the destination general-purpose register.

if !HaveSVE() then UNDEFINED;
integer esize = 8 << UInt(size);
integer rsize = if esize < 64 then 32 else 64;
integer g = UInt(Pg);
integer n = UInt(Zn);
integer d = UInt(Rd);
boolean isBefore = TRUE;
