Wait a minute, my point was to remind that main cost is the
memory fetching.

Its nice to optimize cpu cycles if we are short of them,
but in the csum_partial() case, the bottleneck is the memory.

Also I was wondering on the implications of changing reads order,
as it might fool cpu predictions.

I do not particularly care about finding the right prefetch stride,
I think Intel guys know better than me.
