It feels like you did not read my comments on those assembler messages. ;-)

The problem here is actually quite different from what you dealt with in
sse2i_winfix.pl.  We actually need a code change here, not just syntax
change.  (I am talking of the 64-bit build only.)

The alignment warnings are actually easy to deal with in a script, but
they're also relatively unimportant (we get excessive alignment).  We
have more instances of them in md5-mmx.S and now also in md4-mmx.S.
