we don't have any ARM optimizations yet, just x86 and ppc. but
yes, FLAC__lpc_restore_signal() will give the most bang for the
buck and is the easiest (it's just a multiply-accumulate-shift

    unsigned i, j;
    FLAC__int32 sum;
    for(i = 0; i < data_len; i++) {
        sum = 0;
        for(j = 0; j < order; j++)
            sum += qlp_coeff[j] * data[i-j-1];
        data[i] = residual[i] + (sum >> lp_quantization);

the next would probably be FLAC__fixed_restore_signal(), which
is also easy, and FLAC__bitbuffer_read_rice_signed_block(),
which is unfortunately complicated.
