Ah, I was reading just the grammar and it didn't look like the number was
optional.

BTW, as I said on IRC yesterday, for say:
#pragma omp declare simd simdlen(8) notinbranch
int foo (int a, int b);
in the 'x' ISA (i.e. SSE2), we are supposed to pass it as
typedef int V __attribute__((vector_size (16)));
foo (V a.1, V a.2, V b.1, V b.2)
which probably isn't that hard for arguments, but are supposed to return
also the return value in two V registers (%xmm0/%xmm1).  We can't pass that
as vector(8) int, so perhaps pretend the return value is ARRAY_TYPE of
2 vector(4) ints and have some special code in the backend to pass that
return value in two xmm registers.  Similarly for 4 and 8.
