The patch is wordwrapped.  Please fix your MUA.

More seriously, on i386:

   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  15509      27      28   15564    3ccc mm/memory.o	(before)
  15561      27      28   15616    3d00 mm/memory.o	(after)

I'm not sure why - some of the quantities which we're dividing by there are
64-bit and perhaps the compiler has decided not to do shifting.

Please always check the before-and-after .text size from now on?

Now I'm worried about all the other DIV_ROUND_UP() conversions we did.  We
should get in there and work out why it went bad.
