This is micro-optimization at its best. I doubt it has any influence in
real world scenarios. And if it does, something else is extremely broken.
You don't want to takt the route and implement it in assembler?
Besides, I guess it's totally CPU dependant, how stuff can be pipelined,
all memory locations ought to be in the cache anyways.
