Jesús, I backported this to 2.7 because it was affecting intended usability of multiple parts of the API.  The current code had the egregious and unintended side-effect of touching every data element during a rotate -- this resulted in a huge number of unnecessary cache line misses and was blowing useful data out of cache.

IMO, a performance bug is different from a micro-optimization, especially if it is affecting the intended uses for part of an API.

Serhiy, you're welcome to backport to 3.3 if you desire.
