This broke the test on Solaris/SPARC:

+FAIL: gcc.dg/vect/no-section-anchors-vect-69.c scan-tree-dump-times vect "vectorized 4 loops" 1

both 32 and 64-bit.  The dump now has

no-section-anchors-vect-69.c:39:5: note: vectorized 3 loops in function.

and (compared to the gcc-7 branch)

no-section-anchors-vect-69.c:44:3: note: not vectorized: unsupported unaligned store.tmp1[2].a.n[1][2][i_74]
