Not only that, but the code above is not very efficient!
The setup time for 'rep movsx' instruction is significant on many
modern cpus, making the second 'rep movsb' particularly slow.
I'm not even sure what the break-even length for the one is!
Sequence like (give or take assembler syntax):
shrl $2, %ecx
should be better given large enough %ecx
