For the 0079 patch, this is probably a little more efficient since it
avoids a mod which may be implemented as a division:
PlaneSize= (OutputWidth[i]+7)/8; // doublecheck ... should already
be divisible by 8
The thing that is not clear to me... What is the datatype of
OutputWidth[i]? If it is a 16-bit type (or larger), then you may want:
const size_t width = sizeof(OutputWidth)*CHAR_BITS;
