FWIW, here is yet another way to do it:

/* Change 6/7 to 4/5 */
data &= ~((data & 0x0404040404040404ULL) >> 1);
/* Only allow 0/1/4/5 now */
return !(data & 0xFAFAFAFAFAFAFAFAULL);

movabs $0x404040404040404, %rcx
andq %rdx, %rcx
shrq %rcx
notq %rcx
movabs $0xFAFAFAFAFAFAFA, %rax
andq %rcx, %rdx
test %rax, %rdx
