A timing confounder: I see that CPython's _Py_popcount32() only tries to use the relevant blazing fast hardware instruction if defined(__clang__) || defined(__GNUC__). On Windows, it's a long-winded bit-fiddling dance.

So which of xor-popcount and add-up-up-trailing-zero-counts is faster may well depend on platform.
