I think you are confused about what the variables cost are associated
to.  You are changing a place that computes also the cost
for non-outer-loop-vectorization so your patch is clearly not applicable.

vec_outside_cost is the cost of setting up invariants for example.
All costs apply to the "outer" loop - if there is a nested loop
inside that loop its costs are folded into the "outer" loop cost
already at this stage.

So I think your analysis is simply wrong and thus your patch.

You need to find another place to fix inner loop cost.
