In general it shouldn't matter at all on any reasonably
modern CPU (let's say less than 10 years old) unless you do
it tens of thousands of times in a loop. Also gcc has reasonable
default heuristics for this kind of stuff anyways
(e.g. return NULL or return negative value is predicted
unlikely by default)

Cache misses are far more important to care about because
they cost hundreds of cycles.
