This is strange.
Both Beam and hipe-native code have special cases
for addition of "small integers" (signed integers that
fit into 28 bits), so that erts_mixed_plus() does not
Are you sure that the benchmark code itself causes the
call erts_mixed_plus() (and not, for instance, the
benchmarking framework)? Or could it be that the
ackermann benchmark uses big numbers or floats?
