I did this renaming (only file name, format label is still nt2) in patch
0038 which also contains a couple more profiling tweaks. I just can't
get it quite as fast as NT except for 32-bit sse2i builds (but that one
is 24% faster for some odd reason!). A 64-bit build is 3% slower on my gear.

It is not really a fair fight though, I believe the NT format reverses
the last step (or whatever you call it) while the intrinsics function
does not. Maybe we could add that as an option for the intrinsics...
