you talk about optimizing C code to asm and converting inline
to yasm both in one patch and use it as argument why yasm is better.
But its the C->asm optimization that makes it better not inline->yasm

its hardly a strawman argument to point out that there are 2 unrelated changes
and the advantages of one hardly are arguments why the other is a good idea
