Culprit is commit 3e002a474b64c83f8768ba8918209eca9d7599a3

    [win32] Update pixman MMX code to work with MSVC
    Patch from Tor Lillqvist.

When building with "-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer", in 16bpp RGBA, you get
funky mask. Code was probably broken before but it wasn't visible.

With help of our gcc guy (Gwenole Beauchesne), I've fix it "the right
way (c)Gwenole" and it should be optimized nicely with gcc.

However, since I'm not a expert in this area, I would suggest somebody
with more knowledge to check fbmmx.c for other funky conversions between
ullong and __m64 and use to_ullong and to_m64 instead of using M64

Another nice thing is it was the first time I use git to commit a patch
(better late than never) and use git rebase to move it to HEAD.

I haven't testing this patch with MSVC (since I don't have Windows
platform around) but I don't think it will cause problem.
