Puzzles me, I didn't think calculation order was different in both cases
and optimized for the reduction part. But maybe check the code, if it
is optimized, it would calculate this more like `res += data[0]; res +=
data[1]; res += data[2]` (for faster memory access), which would
probably kill the extended registers (I don't know this hardware stuff,
so might be wrong). One simple try hinting that this may be going on
would be to data fortran order.
