Won't that add a reference to the 64bit divide function?
If snd_cwnd is small then maybe:
	target_cwnd = (256u * vegas->baseRTT) / rtt * tp->snd_cwnd / 256u;
If large I think low bits are always zero so:
	target_cwnd = (256u * vegas->baseRTT) / rtt * (tp->snd_cwnd / 256u);
Possibly with a different power of 2...
