I am having this warning

  draw/draw_vs_sse.c: In function ‘draw_create_vs_sse’:
  draw/draw_vs_sse.c:172: warning: assignment from incompatible pointer type

It seems the prototype of vs_sse_run_linear was not updated in the commit and
the function body is accessing the wrong arguments.

Yeah, that sounds good.  This is not the first time (#28752) the SSE
path gives weird bugs.
