The branch implements several performance improvements, notably 4-to-8 bit expansion with a SIMD algorithm. The structure of auxiliary threads was completely redesigned: from Recv::Port-based to Eiger::Recv-based. The Recv::Port callbacks now block until the Eiger::Recv::Threads finish frame processing.
