I guess I'm fine so far with a non-unrolled loop. Especially since most of my updates can have an arbitrary size.

I expect to have a framework containing Duff's device ready by the end of January.

Unrolled transfers can do arbitrarily sized transfers just fine, you just have to jump to the correct spot inside the loop. But if the rolled version is enough to transfer all you need, that's fine.
