Heyho Roberto,

usually the compiler should fix this code duplication, at least with -Os set.
So, before the patch, the code is easier to read and the compiler takes care of
code deduplication. After the patch you save some compiler optimization time
versus a little longer parsing time due to a few more lines of code which are
also less intuitive. I think we're better off without this one.
