  - Fixed x86_32 compilation

v2: [2]
  - Addressing comments James left on iter. 1
  - Cleaned up how dither gets read to avoid using stack space

v1: [1]

This patchset aims to optimize yuv2nv12cX_c for Intel/AMD chips by adding an
AVX2 implementation of it. To support this change, the typedef declaration for
yuv2interleavedX_fn has been changed to pass two additional parameters for
chrDither8 and dstFormat rather than passing a pointer to the entire SwsContext.
Output is bit-identical to the software implementation.

Patchset validated on an Intel Xeon W-2133, Core i7-8650U, and an AMD Ryzen
1700. Passes fate tests; this patch is exercised by

Benchmarks measured on the W-2133. Flags used are:

  -benchmark -i /dev/shm/benchmark.mp4 -pix_fmt nv42 -f null -

Benchmark material is a yuv420p file:
