Don't take this the wrong way, but ...
Auto-parallelization techniques in compilers  have been mature since
the late 70's.

There are plenty of benchmarks and test suites

The typical ones are:

Parallel Loops (by Cray/Oak Ridge)
The Perfect Benchmarks
Livermore loops
NAS Parallel Benchmarks

You just have to realize that compiler parallelization happened in
Fortran *many many* years before it became common for C/C++/etc
