Description Michael Saboff 2011-11-17 17:56:20 PST
Investigate common cases string processing is generic (e.g. using characters()) and could benefit from 8 bit specific processing.
Comment 1 Michael Saboff 2011-11-22 10:19:54 PST
Retargeting this defect to one java script tune - JSStringBuilder which uses UString::characters() and a 16 bit buffer irrespective of the actual string size or data range.

This patch is worth about .5% on SunSpider using jsc.
