When choosing a vector path to take, an extra condition must be
satisfied to ensure the max SIMD bitwidth allows for the CPU enabled
path. These checks are added in the check alg helper functions.

v8:
  - Added AVX512X32 into default options for get best alg function.
  - Updated doc to reflect the above change.
v7:
  - Removed global variable for max SIMD bitwidth.
  - Added helper function for checking AVX512 cpu flags.
  - Separated condition checking for the AVX512 algorithms to allow for
    checking 256/512 max SIMD bitwidth, respectively.
  - Added to docs to reflect the added changes in algorithm selection.

 It is purely a runtime decision which method to choose, there is no build-time difference.
 All implementations operates over the same internal RT structures and use similar principles. The main difference is that vector implementations can manually exploit IA SIMD instructions and process several input data flows in parallel.
