I don't recall.  Was this a long time ago?  Can it be resent to me, please?

The unroll count should probably be adjusted, most likely to different
values for different target devices.  Not unrolling at all is probably
not optimal.

Sure, if there are still many generic optimizations yet to be
implemented, those should be added first, although this may mean that
proper benchmarking of them isn't yet possible.
