+1. It will bloat IR a bit, but we can turn it on only when vectorization
is enabled, when it's likely that people won't be looking at IR anyway.

You may have issues with inlining, ie. have to teach it to change the
metadata to cope with the function changing, since inlining can expose many
forms of parallelism.
