IMHO that's an abuse of lua_CFunction. Calling them that way you're
losing upvalues, the called function doesn't get a clean input stack,
and its output stack won't be trimmed like it would if it went through
a lua_call. To store function pointers used like that you should use
light userdata. But that's not the issue.

No, Lua shouldn't be involved, and provided you don't use upvalues
from C and you keep the stack balanced, there shouldn't be any speed

Can you provide a full but minimal working example? I would bet that
in creating one you will find the root cause of your problem, but even
if you don't we will for sure.
