That patch has been backported to gcc-12 as r12-9258-g21e7145aaf582c.

I confirm I observe the problem with gcc-12 targeting ppc64-vx7r2,
containing the backported patch, and that the loop is vectorized,
failing the test.

It's unfortunately not viable for me to test GCC trunk with vxworks, so
my testing with it is limited to earlier GCC versions, that we (AdaCore)
have already ported or are in the process of porting.  I make up for
that by testing trunk with other target variants, to the best of my
abilities, to avoid regressions, but sometimes I just can't tell whether
my baseline for regression testing doesn't contain a failure because
there's another fix, or because it just doesn't fail on that target

In this case, the comments in the patch you mentioned don't seem to
match the situation at hand: the SImode stores vectorized into V2SImode
(DImode) seem profitable and are *not* split by vector lowering.
