It doesn't.  It should at least have a shortcut for the 0,0 motion
vector because its very high probability (relative to other fullpel
motion vectors that result in no chroma interpolation).  For other
cases, it might or might not be worthwhile to add a branch in the asm
to the 1D-only case.

See ffvp8 for an example of zero-MV shortcutting (done in the C code, not asm).
