The VP9 (x86) assembly is mostly done. What's remaining is adding a few
AVX2 functions (I should get some hardware soon, so I'll probably work on
it myself), and small functions which are not really relevant currently
(typically the _8 variants of the loop filter), and eventually some more
x86 32-bit (Ronald and I don't care much about it, but Guillaume Martres
eventually wanted to try something).

Anyway, I don't see anything worth a GSoC for VP9. There is still room for
improvement, but that won't belong in the x86 ASM.

Now of course, there is some ARM asm that could be added, but I actually
started looking at it as well, and probably won't be able to mentor on it.

If you want a GSoC for assembly, I would suggest looking at filters. There
are really a lot of candidates.
