Hi Timothy,

I responded to your feedback before I started on RFCv3.. and took your
silence as approval :).. I guess that email got lost in your inbox sea
some where.. so re-posting the responses.

So, this time, I will wait for your ack before I proceed to RFCv4..
Although.. after all these reviews.. I may just submit it as PATCHv1..
since the patch is almost there and there are no major objections any

After you feedback, I moved this part from configure.ac to
Makefile.am.. If it doesn't belong here either, then I need some
guidance. I wouldn't know where else to put this. Without
"-mfpu=neon", the intrinsic code wouldn't even compile. And without
-O3.. the instructions that are generated are just painful. Please

Copy paste from my previous email.
 I got the idea of unrolling this from your earlier comment
"This load is always redundant in the first iteration, which is a bit
Now, that I unrolled it and tested it to make sure it works, is there
a specific reason you think this is will be any slower than a simple
loop and want to go back? I know it saves one load as compared to a
simple loop. It would be hard to prove that it is measurably better
than the simple loop. But I would sincerely prefer it this way.. It is
fairly straight forward unroll in my opinion.

Will do
