Generate the vsynth3-dnxhd-1080i-10bit.mov added after another patch.

Decode it first using faani (you could miss the error).

Now, for the parameters that fail. You know how
(1<<(%pass_bitdepth-1))/W4 is added to the first butterfly. The macro
allows to pass the right pw_ to it (essentially times 4 dw
1<<(%pass_bitdepth-1-14)), or "" and expects to find a
pd_round_%pass_bitdepth (essentially times 4 dd
1<<(%pass_bitdepth-1)). This is indicated in the comments of the
template: "Adding 1<<(%2-1) for >=15 bits values".

"", 13, pw_8, 18, 0, pw_1023 => stddev:    1.33 PSNR: 45.61 MAXDIFF:  255
"", 12, pw_16, 19, 0, pw_1023 => stddev:    0.33 PSNR: 57.61 MAXDIFF:  255
to the result of the current parameters (no difference)

The same input doesn't cause issue to prores, for some reason,
probably because the mean DC (through times 4 dw 0x2008) is added at
the last pass.
