its not so simple

theres a optimizing compiler between you and the CPU
the multiplication is a shift really, and the compiler may very well
change this to dst++, buf++ and buf < buf_end
or it might use something like p[8*i] and q[i]
i++ and a i<=0 check, the 8* can on some architectures be free as
part of addressing memory

if you are interrested in optimizing code see

and intels Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software Developers Manual
is invaluable as a reference but not useable for other purposes than
as a reference (its too huge)
