I've created a pull request for this change on github:

I've created SSE2 routines from the existing SSE 'new' routines and
updated the VSX routines. I've kept the SSE routines around, but I've
removed the autoc[] assembly routines. As you mention, SSE without
SSE2 will not affect many users, so it doesn't really matter whether
they are kept around or removed. Perhaps I'll create another pull
request later to remove them just as a cleanup.
