Sorry if I am being a fool here, I had 3 different interpretations of
the results after this change in the last 15 minutes. It was confusing
for somehow..

Why do you think above change matters ? I think nothing changed after
this diff at all.

We have three different values here:

util/max, j_util/j_max, and j_boost_util/j_boost_max.

And we are trying to find the max among them and changing the order of
comparisons doesn't change anything.

Am I reading the code correctly ?
