I was almost sure to have checked the cross-dependencies between the various
blocks of code, but I overlooked this 'unsigned <= 0x7fffffff' thing... Your
patch is obviously better than mine in order to fix this chicken-and-egg

May I suggest you to add thorough cross-comments to the code ? I see you did
so for the second optimization and I think it would be nice to do it for the
first one too (saying that the current location of the optimization causes
the second one to be altered).

It looks like this doesn't fit with the GCC policy on the matter, but it
could also be worth leaving the original code inside an #if 0/#endif or a
