Out of loop isn't the same as const. Const means it never changes,
ever. It means that the value is the same, regardless of input values
to the function call. So regardless of buf_size, bps, b always has the
Of course, that isn't the case, because it is calculated from them.
By moving the calculation outside the loop, gcc already knows to
calculate it only once, const isn't needed for that. gcc will not
calculate it for each loop iteration.
