Disable vectorization on pre SSE2

The bugs issue actually bothers me here.

I'm really alarmed that we're papering over an inability to scalarize
vector code. I think that's a bad sign.

Should the vectorizer produce it? No, because its slow.

Should the backend be able to handle it? *Yes*, and it is worth some amount
of pain to try to ensure this is the case.
