The code seems to be incorrect. It rounds to a larger region, leaving
black border, which makes cropping pointless. You'd need to round the
other direction for it to work. But even this is nonsense, since you
should just scale after cropping rather than overcropping or
undercropping to meet n%16==0 requirements.
