Hey,

Which is why I liked the idea of having the compiler detect if you are using a
constant of 2/8/10/16 and switching in the fast code, otherwise it's the full
sized code. Though I only sent it to avr-gcc, and not avr-libc-dev.

PS: From now on should we just discuss this an avr-libc-dev, it seems more in
place at this point?

Neither are the Germans: ,,Der Weg zur Hölle ist mit guten Vorsätzen
gepflastert.''

I guess I agree with Bernard's argumentation, basically.

I agree. I'd like to ``officially'' finish the poll here, and thank
everyone who participated. I know people are interested in getter
faster and smaller code, but also think violating POLA is not to be
taken lightly. I'll see what will eventually come out, but it should
be at least a compile-time option to select the faster (and smaller)
routines.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
