But the same program generating LLVM IR version cannot be vectorized with opt -O3 -vectorize-loops. So our guess is that our generated LLVM IR lacks some informations that are needed by the vectorization passes to correctly work.

Without any knowledge about the code guessing is hard. You may miss the
'noalias' keyword or nsw/nuw flags, but there are many possibilities.
If you add '-debug' to opt you may get some hints. Also, if you have a
small test case, posting the LLVM-IR may help.
