Impressive numbers. But this is presumably a worst-case microbenchmark.

Are you able to describe the benefits which are observed in some
real-world workload which someone cares about?

It's a lot of new code. I t looks decent and I'll toss it in there for
further testing. Hopefully someone will be able to find the time for a
detailed review.

Trivial point: the code uses "inline" a lot. Nowadays gcc cheerfully
ignores that and does its own thing. You might want to look at the
effects of simply deleting all that. Is the generated code better or
worse or the same? If something really needs to be inlined then use
__always_inline, preferably with a comment explaining why it is there.
