    /* Why 64? 
52
       Indeed, we should align it:
53
         on 4 for 386
54
         on 16 for 486
55
         on 32 for 586, PPro - k6-III
56
         on 64 for K7 (maybe for P3 too).
57
       Because L1 and L2 caches are aligned on those values.
58
       But I don't want to code such logic here!

60 8f2b21a8 Michael Niedermayer
     /* Why 16?
61
        because some cpus need alignment, for example SSE2 on P4, & most RISC cpus
62
        it will just trigger an exception and the unaligned load will be done in the
63
        exception handler or it will just segfault (SSE2 on P4)
64
        Why not larger? because i didnt see a difference in benchmarks ...
