   The problem is -- these are mostly __GNUC__ ifdefs. As I pointed
out some time ago -- this is on my TODO list, but even if I fix
it it would still be a problem for alternative implementations
of the same ASM functions (e.g. as real .s files or some such).
The later one is a bit of a far fetched example, but with project
like FFmpeg you never know what kind of environment folks
would like to run it under.

   Fair enough. So lets see what Luca and I can do better in that
