gcc has c extensions for mmx, but compared to the apple altivec ones, these 
look much worse than the plain assembly imho..

to clear things up, pdp uses 24bit/pixel (96bit per 2x2 macropixel). 16 bit 
for the luma plane and 16 bit for 2x2 subsampled chroma planes. before 
release i did an 8 bit / component version (12bit/pixel) but it is too small 
if you want to do feedback stuff and want some headroom to play with. also 
since all mmx integer multiplications are 16bit, this cuts down on
