That's way not quite bad to me than the existing:

 - It is easier understanding, although a little complex than origin.

 - For compiler, 'end' is simple enough to be sure to be optimized.

 - And I guess, compiler will understand, and will not worry about it.

OK, thanks, at least, what you said is acceptable to me. If no any
additional reply within this week (within 2014-10-12), I shall send
patch v2 for it.

OK, thanks.
