after reading my own post again it seems ive been a little more harsh then
intended, so sorry but what you proposed is not ok,

just replacing 
code like:
ROW_IDCT(  64(%0), 72(%0), 80(%0), 88(%0), 64(%1), paddd (%2), 11)
ROW_IDCT(  64(%0), 72(%0), 80(%0), 88(%0), 64(%1), "paddd (%2)", 11)

together with the other changes i proposed will work
and is IMO nothing special but just normal use of the pre processor

In the past you could go to a library and read, borrow or copy any book
Today you'd get arrested for mere telling someone where the library is
