For legibility, could we make the offset and bias explicit in the STNPs
so that these line up? e.g.

stnp x4, x5, [x0, #16 - 256]
ldp x4, x5, [x1, #16]

... that'd make it much easier to see by eye that this is sound, much as
I trust my mental arithmetic. ;)

... likewise here:

stnp xt1, xt2, [x0, #off - 256]

I don't see a nicer way to write this sequence without using an
additional register, so with those changes:
