Not all You can every write in c/c++. Sometime You need a call for a
library function. I think, that can be one and I think, not only
TlsAlloc use a zero_bit_scan.

Does this actually make a noticeable difference? Rewriting stuff in
assembly for theoretical performance improvements isn't so great, as far
fewer people can read/write assembly than C.
