I see no difference here. You are seeing a 10% slowdown, which is possibly a measurement glitch. The bottom line is that the performance remains approximately the same.

The problem is the "suboptimal code" is also the natural way to write such code. If you know a simple and idiomatic way to write an optimal bytes FIFO, then please share it with us. Otherwise, I will happily ignore your line of argument here.
