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
