Fix trac #10647: Notice about lack of SIMD support

Fixes #10647. Changes the error message when a SIMD size
variable is required in the native code generation backend.

Test Plan:
Try compiling the test case given in the ticket :

{-# LANGUAGE MagicHash #-}
module Foo where
import GHC.Prim
data V = V Int8X16#

GHC should give a clearer error message
