Even when including the UTF-8 stuff, you could/should use "#ifdef 
FMT_UTF8" (this is defined by the UTF-8 patch) in the assembler files, 
for a version that optionally keeps that bitshift optimisation.

Later, I/you/we might end up with UTF-8 aware code that still use the 
optimisation when the --utf8 option is not used. I really try to avoid 
performance impacts when not using it. Though I guess this means having 
(yet another) two of each arch-dependant function. Maybe the speedup is 
not worth it?
