Previous best on 3.06Ghz P4:

-O3 -funroll-loops -march=pentium4 -mmmx -msse -msse2
  1841293 ANSI Compact 1-pipe
  1506512 ANSI Standard 1-pipe
  2109118 ANSI Compact 2-pipe
  1611131 ANSI Standard 2-pipe
  3052671 AMD64/x86 MMX Compact 1x2-pipe
  3866716 AMD64/x86 MMX Standard 1x2-pipe *

and new code:

-O3 -funroll-loops -march=pentium4 -mmmx -msse -msse2
  1993854 ANSI Compact 1-pipe
  1715641 ANSI Standard 1-pipe
   905185 ANSI Ultra-Compact 1-pipe
  2379761 ANSI Compact 2-pipe

  3278782 AMD64/x86 MMX Compact 1x2-pipe
  4339564 AMD64/x86 MMX Standard 1x2-pipe *

so 12% faster on P4.
