will lead to that difference in PPC assembly:
That's nice. Will that single removed instruction even be noticeable
when compared to the square root and the log 2 lines down?

That I'd call lack of time and interest.
You're the one trying to prove that it makes a significant

Don't even try to catch a difference using a synthetic microbenchmark;
do it on real code and you will see that it makes a difference.
Fine. Prove it the old fashioned way -- by benchmarking it.
