LOL .. actually I didn't put them in in the first place ;-)
But inlining might make the calling loop faster.

Hm, easy to try now ... inlining cut the time in almost in half again.
I assigned to a volatile so the loop wouldn't get optimized away.
I just have a loop in the test kludge like

     else if (strcmp(argv[1],"v2")==0){
         for (i=0;i<256*256*256;++i){
             antiO2 = component_delta2(i, i^0xffffff);

For the above with inlined component_delta2 I get
55ms vs 95ms not inlined, vs orig not inlined 167ms, FWIW.
My optimization reflex just got triggered, I didn't look at the
full post context to see if it might really be useful or not.
