eina_array: micro optimize eina_array_push
This commit does two things: - Tell the compiler that it is unlikely that we need to grow, and that it is unlikely that data is NULL. Sometimes the if check for data would get dropped out by the compiler when it can be ensured that it is != NULL. However, if we for example efl_add something and eina_push the result, the condition would not be removed, as there is no assertion efl_add would be != NULL. - Do not hide the array assignment in a branch, but make it the default branch, this way instruction cache caches the correct instruction, as branch prediction will now hopefully, due to the hinting, take the correct branch. While benchmarking this here (simply in elementary_perf), this reduced pipeline faults in eina_array_push quite a bit. (Btw. it is hard to track *which* exact calls to eina_array_push do cause that, as mostly this API gets inlined, so it was easier optimizing that, instead of the method arround) Reviewed-by: Stefan Schmidt <> Differential Revision:
