The compiler doesn't know the size of the user's icache, so it's hard
to make these tradeoffs: processors with lower instruction density might
well use bigger icaches to compensate.

Agreed, we need numbers.  Gerald's tests are one source of inputs; there
also may be some code in Boost that could be used.
