Rename metadata llvm.loop.vectorize.unroll to llvm.loop.vectorize.interleave

Hi Mark, Hal,
Something I had on my list of things to do was to modify the metadata to allow vectorization and interleaving to be controlled independently. Right now 'loop.vectorize.enable’ turns on/off both vectorization and interleaving. So #pragma clang loop vectorize(enable) actually turns on interleaving as well. I would like to see the metadata be something like.
That would be consistent with 'loop.unroll.enable/count’ and the pragma clang loop syntax.
Perhaps you could rename ‘loop.vectorize.unroll' to ‘loop.interleave.count'. That way in a future patch we could add ‘loop.interleave.enable'.
What do you think?
