It makes sense. It's more about me not noticing it was ssse3 only and
these butterflies were fancy names for mostly unpacks.

I'm a bit lost here, because I was expecting some kind of rounding,
iirc in the last stage when going from internal 16bits to output
8bits. pmulhrw usually helps doing something like (a+OFFSET)>>s but
there seems to be no OFFSET here, so maybe I was mistaken.
