I guess you never used uint16x8x2 and similar types then, because almost any access to them seems to go via the stack.
See the last file of http://lists-archives.com/mplayer-dev-eng/38036-add-neon-optimizations-to-some-critical-audio-functions.html , it spilled the data to stack twice per loop iteration.
