I'm not sure if you're pinging me or Keith, so I'll respond :)

I don't personally see much wrong with the current code, so I don't
really care to write a patch for it myself.

To respond to Keith: I agree that the correct solution should come in
the form of a single patch, not two. But to me, a revert and a patch
on top of the current form seems like two, whereas a patch from the
current state to whatever it needs to be appears to be one.

It doesn't matter to me. Just don't submit a patch that adds this
assembly back in and leaves it at that.
