Hi Folks,

We (Intel) would like to add profitability tests to superword to gate scenarios where reduction optimization overhead is roughly equal to the benefit gained by vectorization.

We would like to do this for all x86 enabled microarchitectures that support reductions and superword.  This new constraint was tested on SSE and AVX (1,2) enabled platforms.

And its code and test addition (this is a small patch):
