that's even worse, since now you need a whole temporary matrix instead of
just a temporary row/column:
let's look at the first z iteration: the for y for x part writes to the
whole destination matrix, and both input matrixes are needed for the next z
iteration, preventing either input matrix from using the same storage as
the output matrix.
