IPP 6.1 Performance Tests for Linux* segfault on SNB
I am running ./ps_ippiem64t on SNB architecture to get some FLOP #s out of it but am getting a segfault, at least one after ippiResize_32f_C1R. I'm running on other machines, but it appears it correctly sees the architecture as having AVX support when the program starts. I need to know what is wrong here.

AVX code for 6.1 (you see - its release date is June 2009) was developed under simulator/emulator and could not be tested on the real HW. First of all if you need AVX support - you should switch to IPP version that has been tested on the real HW - 6.1 update 6 or 7.0 beta/gold (of course the latest - 7.0 gold - is the best variant). Also Resize_ is deprecated functionality - it is reccomended to use ResizeSqrPixel instead.
