you might want to check the archives:

to explain the terms 'alignment' and 'aliasing':

audio blocks are not known to be aligned to 16byte boundaries

for functions in the form foo(t_sample * a, t_sample * b, int n), the
compiler is unable to know if the memory regions of a and b are
overlapping (b may be a+1)
