No, sorry. I meant that if I change the code to instead do the xor
operation into a temp array, then I expect the loop to be vectorized.
But the overhead would likely negate the vectorization benefits
(haven't tried it, though). Incidentally, GCC gives up on vectorizing
this loop for essentially the same reason. It decides that the access
pattern is too complex to bother.
