I think that is not the right probability, when using masked simd, the point
is that it is called from conditional code where usually not all the bits in
the mask are set.  So I think it is better to use say likely () probability
for the EDGE_FALSE_VALUE edge (that mask != 0) and unlikely () probability
for the EDGE_TRUE_VALUE edge.
Hopefully that conditional goes away later when vectorized, but if it
doesn't, we shouldn't  say it is that unlikely it will be masked off.
