Please review the following that removes Vector.fromValues:

This method is not well optimized and it likely never will be particularly efficient since constructing a vector from values through a temporary buffer or explicit insertion will have a cost.   

The workaround is to use fromArray or the explicit withLane, which I think is fine for constructing vector constants (those constant within a loop or otherwise), and bring to the foreground the potential costs.
