    While it would work, this sequence is overkill. Unless I'm mistaken, the
    only property of bswap which is used in this case is that it swaps even
    and odd bytes, which can be done by a simple "roll $8,%eax" (or rorl).

    I believe that bswap is one byte shorter than roll. In any case, using a
    rotate might be the right thing to do on other architectures.
