This new patch (v3) should be ok. 
I added a few more tests and found another corner case:
'\xe1a'.decode('utf-8', 'replace') was returning u'\ufffd' because \xe1 is the start byte of a 3-byte sequence and there were only two bytes in the string. This is now fixed in the latest patch.

I also unrolled all the loops except the first one because I haven't found an elegant way to unroll it (yet).

Finally, I changed the error messages to make them clearer:
unexpected code byte -> invalid start byte;
invalid data -> invalid continuation byte.
(I can revert this if the old messages are better or if it is better to fix this with a separate commit.)

The performances seem more or less the same, I did some benchmarks without significant changes in the results. If you have better benchmarks let me know. I used a file of 320kB with some ASCII, ASCII mixed with some accented characters, Japanese and a file with a sample of several different Unicode chars.
