No, you're right I think - but we have no access to the req->tid
here (inside the parsing function), and have to do a strequal
call anyway (which is the expensive part of the code path). The
code I added will move the matching tid to the front of the
linked list which will make subsequent hits the first strequal
tried on the same tid path.

I'll look into refactoring to get access to the incoming tid
and see how much code change that will involve.
