Add missing cases to vect_get_smallest_scalar_type (PR 85286)
In this PR we used WIDEN_SUM_EXPR to vectorise:
short i, y;
for (i = x; i > 0; i--)
sum += y;
with 4 ints and 8 shorts per vector. The problem was that we set
the VF based only on the ints, then calculated the number of vector
copies based on the shorts, giving 4/8. Previously that led to
ncopies==0, but after r249897 we pick it up as an ICE.
In this particular case we could vectorise the reduction by setting
ncopies based on the output type rather than the input type, but it
doesn't seem worth adding a special "optimisation" for such a
pathological case. I think it's really an instance of the more general
problem that we can't vectorise using combinations of (say) 64-bit and
128-bit vectors on targets that support both.
