Does the odd-even trick matter?

Because if you're doing the usual x%2 to check for even/oddness, your machine will do a >> operation since your mod is a power of two. This takes one cycle, just like your bit hack.

Why should we rely on compiler optimization? If I see x%2 instead of (x&1) I feel like something written by a non-professional.
