sorry for my delay but I was little bit busy during last days.

What I have done:
I have renamed and made few new functions in proto.c for more
comfortable profiling.
  g_strcmp() renamed to wrs_strcmp()
  g_str_hash() from glib coppied into proto.c with new name
  some parts of proto_register_field_init() put into new functions
wrs_check_charset() and tmp_check_assert()

See attached results:
  presultr0.txt - all implemented in C
  presultr1.txt - wrs_strcmp() and wrs_str_hash() implemented in
 Note: you will not see individual times for wrs_strcmp() and
wrs_str_hash() in the presultr1.txt as my assembler (NASM) does nut
support MS debug information but you can compare time of caller
functions and total time

My intention is not to have implemented much code in assembler but just
few simple and critical functions.
