Sorry, there was an error: encoding speed increase is about 0.5% for 32-bit
encoder and ~0% for 64-bit.

encoding speed increase is equal to 1.5-2% for 32-bit encoder compiled without
-msse2 option (I commented out this string in configure.ac to do some other tests
and forgot to revert this change).

So, this patch makes little sense.
