Hi Mathieu,

So I'm quoting tbench benchmark here. The performance drop was jump
label vs. all jump label patches backed out on -Os. If we move to -02,
both the no jump label patches and the jump label patches applied are
faster than all jump label patches backed out on -Os.

so:

jump labels -02 > no jump labels -02 > no jump labels -0s > jump lables
-Os

thanks,

-Jason
