Very cool stuff!  Sounds like this should be a nice improvement for x86
systems. I've tweaked your patch just a bit and changed it to where it is
disabled by default unless configured with --enable-sse2, just to be extra
cautious. Once it gets some validation testing we can change that to be
enabled by default.  Thanks!

As for xxhash support, the current version of that patch is in the patches
git repo (it hasn't been merged yet):
