The Test instruction applied to the rCX register followed by a Jump if Zero
with an 8-bit displacement can be replaced by a single JCXZ/JECXZ/JRCXZ
instruction with no loss of performance (1 cycle + 1 cycle verses 2 cycles on
K8 processors) and a one or two byte decrease in I-cache use per instance.

Replacing TEST rCX/JZ sequences with the JrCXZ insn would be a good first step;
preferentially using the rCX register in order to maximize JrCXZ replacements
would be better.
