This intrinsic inserts a `USAD8`

instruction into the instruction stream generated by the compiler.

It enables
you to perform four unsigned 8-bit subtractions, and add the absolute
values of the differences together, returning the result as a single
unsigned integer.

```
unsigned int __usad8(unsigned int
````val1`

, unsigned int `val2`

)

Where:

`val1`

- holds the first four 8-bit operands for the subtractions
`val2`

- holds the second four 8-bit operands for the subtractions.

The

`__usad8`

intrinsic returns the sum of
the absolute differences of:- The subtraction of the first byte in the second operand from the first byte in the first operand.
- The subtraction of the second byte in the second operand from the second byte in the first operand.
- The subtraction of the third byte in the second operand from the third byte in the first operand.
- The subtraction of the fourth byte in the second operand from the fourth byte in the first operand.

The sum is returned as a single unsigned integer.

unsigned int subtract_add_abs(unsigned int val1, unsigned int val2) { unsigned int res; res = __usad8(val1,val2); /* absdiff1 = val1[7:0] - val2[7:0] absdiff2 = val1[15:8] - val2[15:8] absdiff3 = val1[23:16] - val2[23:16] absdiff4 = val1[31:24] - val2[31:24] res[31:0] = absdiff1 + absdiff2 + absdiff3 + absdiff4 */ return res; }
