As you said this is a very hot function, but this changes code from:

2e: 48 8b 75 08 mov 0x8(%rbp),%rsi

to:

2b: 48 c7 c2 00 00 00 81 mov $0xffffffff81000000,%rdx
32: 48 81 ea 00 00 00 00 sub $0x0,%rdx
3c: 48 03 55 08 add 0x8(%rbp),%rdx

This also changes semantics, as returned PCs won't match nm/objdump output.
