You could try decoding residual in channel-interleaved order, do that 
consecutive codebook entries are consecutive in decoded memory. The simd 
savings might be worth an extra copy to deinterleave afterward.

Better yet but more complex would be to decode residual in channel-
interleaved order and don't deinterleave. That would reduce the number of 
shuffles in mdct/fft (for 2 or 4 channels), but would require new fft
