I was going to look at that once rc2 is in - and the kernel is
likely to work.

I suspect the split version doesn't get inlined the same way?
Which leaves the horrid argument conversion the inline got
rid of back there again.

Which all rather begs the question of why the compiler doesn't
generate the expected code.
