It might be that GCC is not optimizing this division as strongly
as it should. __divdi3 is a 64-bit signed divide. A signed divide is not
the same as a shift. Maybe the 64-bit variable is not declared as
unsigned when it should be?
The Linux kernel does not link against libgcc.a, so any GCC
support routines (such as __divdi3) need to be provided explicitly.
