It would be pretty easy to copy it from libgcc2.  You don't want to do
this by hand, it's big and nasty in C, in assembly it would be a
nightmare.  You would have to do some license massaging, though, because
libgcc2.c is GPL with special provisions.  I can look at gcc, but it's
hard to tell how long something like that takes to find.
