Re: [PATCH, PR52252] Alternative way of vectorization for load groups of size 2 and 3.

New hook is related to vector instructions only. Vector instructions
could be sequential in pipeline, but scalar - parallel. For x86
architectures TARGET_SCHED_REASSOC_WIDTH does not give required
General hooks could be potentially reused in other algorithms/by other
