CCL's optimizers do a pretty good job, if you tell them to:

CL-USER> (defun add (x y)
           (declare (fixnum x y) (optimize (speed 3) (safety 0)))
           (the fixnum (+ x y)))
ADD
CL-USER> (disassemble 'add)
    (recover-fn-from-rip)                   ;     [0]
    (pushq (% rbp))                         ;     [7]
    (movq (% rsp) (% rbp))                  ;     [8]
    (pushq (% arg_y))                       ;    [11]
    (pushq (% arg_z))                       ;    [12]
    (movq (@ -8 (% rbp)) (% arg_y))         ;    [13]
    (movq (@ -16 (% rbp)) (% arg_z))        ;    [17]
    (addq (% arg_y) (% arg_z))              ;    [21]
    (movq (% rbp) (% rsp))                  ;    [24]
    (popq (% rbp))                          ;    [27]
    (retq)                                  ;    [28]
NIL
