SDCC generates the fastest integer code for STM8

Code speed results didn't look that good for SDCC at the time of the SDCC 3.6.0 release about a month ago (http://colecovision.eu/stm8/compilers.shtml). But SDCC has made huge progress since, and now achieves higher Dhrystone and Coremark scores than the other compilers. Here are the results for the current development version (SDCC 3.6.2 #9667): scores-9667.png

P.S.: It's really time to look for some paid work for myself now. This will slow SDCC stm8 progress a bit, since I am the main developer of the stm8 backend in SDCC. However, development will continue both by me and the other SDCC developers.
