I tried this out. The short summary of my results is that the new code
is maybe a couple % faster with no significant change in psnr

Test methodology: vqscale=4 for pass 1, vbitrate=1200 for pass 2. Tested
with some varying combinations of *cmp and v4mv, first with cvs checkout
from December 22, then with today's CVS. Results are here:

I'm on a 1.13GHz P3 using GCC 3.3.6.

I also have the relevant clips here:

There is also a VERY large amount of chroma artifacting in the form of
repeating rainbowish horizontal lines. Seems to be a lot worse when v4mv
is used. I don't recall ever seeing anything like this last time I used
snow - any ideas offhand?
