Honestly, if I had my way we would retroactively change all the
"altivec/Altivec/AltiVec" inconsistencies to "VMX". ;-)  But given the
ubiquity of <altivec.h> (lowercase there) I suppose that's not practical...

I'll return this one to AltiVec, and change "GCC vector" to "GNU vector"
if that's okay with everyone.
