I mean: where does the code in question run? And what does the compiler generate, and how does that mesh with the target CPU?

If it's hardware that's going to space, it's probably not running on a common commercial CPU, so you can't make assumptions about word size and what a 'short' is, etc..

[I don't actually know which code you're talking about]

if it's commented as being there for performance reasons, you can probably assume it was profiled and tested for performance.
