thanks. tested on powerpc-apple-darwin7.0.0 and i686-pc-linux-gnu, and
New tests results:

1) Most of the xfails on i*86 and x86_64 are due to the new restriction I
added that considers STACK_BOUNDARY. Can something better be done for these
platforms? (should I check against PREFERRED_STACK_BOUNDARY instead?)
2) The current vectorization functionality in mainline is _very_ limited.
It will be significantly improved with the following patches for mainline
that are coming up:
- support for loops with unknown loop bound (or loop bound that doesn't
divide by the vectorization factor)
- support for misaligned accesses
- peeling to force alignment of accesses
- support for vectorization of conditional operations
- support for additional forms of data-references (including
