[swift-evolution] More fine tuning optimization to swift compiler

Correction: it should be similar to GCC -funroll-loops
On other option if we have 1,000,000's loops or array, it's bad for one
core to handle 100% of the calculations and other cores are idle, the idea
could be optimize loops to share/split workload across all available CPU

Is a dummy example for other example.
