Indirect function calls are expensive these days for various reasons, including
Spectre mitigations and CFI. Are you sure it's okay from a performance
perspective to make an indirect call for every byte of the pathname?

The byte argument probably should be 'u8', to avoid confusion about whether it's
a byte or a Unicode codepoint.
