The vectorizer cannot currently handle vectorization of sqrt for floats even though there is packed single precision sqrt instruction supported in AVX. The following patch rectifies the situation by adding a new C2 node for floating point version of Sqrt and its vectorized version, along with assembler support for it.

The proposed solution can be found here:

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
