ok, I think I've got it now.

I was stuck at reading exp first, then comparing the following blocks,
then I finally realized it doesn't matter.  Now the inner loop starts at
exp+offset and ends at exp, so sub+jae works fine.

New patch attached.  The best benchmarks are pretty much the same, but
the average speed is more consistently faster.
