New issue 2322: Z SIMD Support

Richard Plangger:

The goal is to enhance the backend to support s390x's SIMD unit. Ultimately this will enhance the execution speed of micro NumPy.
What to expect: As soon as enough time is spent in the optimized (vectorized) code, one can measure faster execution. For a micro benchmark stressing the implementation it would be a factor of 1.5x-2.0x speedup for e.g. float (64bit) addition/multiplication.
A benchmark run will evaluate the implementation on s390x and compare it to x86.
