C/C++ performance magic functions (prevent optimization)
View magic.h
* Those functions are related to:
* They are used to allow to benchmark functions with -O3 that would otherwise be removed because it is unused.
* escape(&object) prevents object to be optimized out
* "This ASM code has some unknowable side effects and possibly stored the pointer globally"
* clobber() tells the compiler some asm might be reading the whole memory
* "This ASM code could probably read/write to all memory" => observe all memory
