Checkout the next branch (which has the latest in volk work)

create volk/kernels/volk/volk_my_kern.h


        //generic c implementation


#ifdef LV_HAVE_SSE2

#include <intrinsics headers.h>

//the _a means that this kernel requires aligned pointers
//otherwise use _u if it does not

        //call sse intrinsics here



Now just re-run cmake and build. When you include volk/volk.h you will
have access to volk_my_kern(params) and that handles the runtime selection.

Rename my_kern to follow the naming convention and contribute the work
back! :-)
