Which of the 0.5% differences is "too small" for what? Such a difference
is small enough that other "random" changes might have bigger effects,
but he claimed that "at worst" the slowdown from supporting older gccs
would be 0.05% and that converting any of the inline asm to intrinsics
would cause over 1% slowdown. If the claim is about 0.05% then a 0.5%
difference shouldn't be too small, and certainly a 0.5% slowdown is not
"too small" to say it's below 1%.
