This is the version I plan to commit Monday or Tuesday, 
barring further feedback.  It uses direct branches as above,
with tweaks to allow inlining when possible (e.g. 64-bit
which always has SSE2).

I've also bootstrapped on powerpc64-linux and ia64-linux.
Those test machines are loaded, so testing is proceeding
rather slowly.  I'd appreciate it if dje and sje could
give it a go on aix and ia64-hpux and see that (1) it works
with the big-endian, ilp32 hpux, and (2) if at all possible
report some performance results.
