Sorry, I don't follow the significance of 1000000000 - could you please
explain?

Just to clarify, what I was saying in my previous email was the
following: I think it might be simpler to just throw away the short
circuit and just do:

	s/DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST/DIV64_U64_ROUND_CLOSEST

like in another patch in this series [1]. That should handle the
rounding properly as per design. Is that okay?

Thank you.

Guru Das.
