Jumping forward is ok (as expected code flow is always forward). And there is lager page few kb - calling outside - small penalty.

Most processors have a fairly large uop cache (up to 2048 for the newest 
generations iirc), so this would only be for the first iteration? Do you 
have a reference (agner fog page or so) or more explanation for this 
that describes this?)
