I found that the following function is about 10% faster then the
unrolled function when using BEAM R12B:
find_8(Buffer, Char, Pos) ->
case Buffer of
<< Char, _/bits >> -> Pos;
<< _, Rest/bits >> ->
find_8(Rest, Char, Pos+1);
It might depend a little on the input though and when both functions
were native compiled there was no major difference between them.
