One line becomes two in your ACL ? 
ip permit
ip deny 

The CPU loss for one more ACL line is probably offsetting the gains of
spoofed traffic pretty well. That will even scale for a little while,
at least for /9 and /10 in the permit line, before you seriously have
to think about how much still-unallocated space you will gratutiously allow
through your ACL.
