Fix the loop sizes to a literal so the compiler has some clue as to how the
loop is structured. The compiler will not figure out passing a runtime
parameter in for the loop size.
It should be noted that most 'benchmarks' for the auto-vector features are
heavily rigged and not like anything used in the average application. See
