Updated cost computation for variable masks, also include the cost of extracting the addresses from the address vector.

I think how we treat it in SLP exactly is a separate issue. I think assigning a more accurate cost will go a long way towards avoiding generating gathers in practice, unless they are beneficial even with the bad lowering.

Yes it probably should better account for the fact that the mem ops need to be executed conditionally. Not really sure how to best cost that. I updated the cost to include extracting the individual conditions, doing a branch and a PHI to combine the result. With that, the cost is not really that much higher. Perhaps something else is missing, or it might be better to just return a sufficiently high number in that case?
