[vector] Add non-masked Vector. intoByteArray accepting a byte order

FTR, I intentionally left that out, because if a programmer
wants to specify a byte order, it’s a pretty simple matter to
specify a mask also.  You simply say:

  Vector data = …;
  data.intoByteArray(a, 0, bo, data.maskAll(true));

The presence of Vector::maskAll (like the presence of Vector::broadcast)
reduces the pressure to multiply out all the masked and unmasked variants
(or all broadcast-scalar and vector-lane-wise variants) of many API points.
