Indeed - thanks, Dmitry! That is much better than what I proposed.
I did a quick and dirty JMH test with this code and it looks to be more than 6% faster for double and more than 24% faster for float versus the current codebase. The speed up is probably more than these values which should be considered lower bounds on speed improvement.
I have updated the webrev accordingly:
Approval by a Reviewer of this patch is still needed.
