  It seems that they do give some performance improvement.  Again, I
made up two images based on #1072 image.  One is without these changes
(i.e., vanilla 1072) and another is with all changes in you #2 and #3

Again, it is over all 7% or such improvement!  It is rather exciting,

  The following is the results from the #1059 image without all of
these changes.  The improvements seems to be "linear".  It is really

  Oh, boy.  Even this wouldn't give us any improvement, I love this
