While trying to understand what Jaroslav wrote, and doing a research on
"restricted pointers", I found out that the gcc manual contains this:

|6.2 Restricting Pointer Aliasing
|As with the C front end, G++ understands the C99 feature of restricted
|pointers, specified with the __restrict__, or __restrict type qualifier.

I don't know yet what's the meaning of the above, but while I am
studying I though that this may be of interest to you :)
