It really depends on what kind of information you want to access.  You can
re-compute things in your pass, or you can make your pass part of the
vectorizer (thus, modify the vectorizer pass).  In particular data_reference
is just what the data-reference analysis usable from any pass (tree-data-ref.h)

But without more information on what information exactly you want to access
(and where - where is your pass placed compared to the vectorizer?) it is
hard to suggest anything.
