2010-10-26div64_u64(): improve precision on 32bit platformsBrian Behlendorf
The current implementation of div64_u64 for 32bit systems returns an approximately correct result when the divisor exceeds 32bits. Since doing 64bit division using 32bit hardware is a long since solved problem we just use one of the existing proven methods. Additionally, add a div64_s64 function to correctly handle doing signed 64bit division.

2008-06-12add an inlined version of iter_div_u64_remJeremy Fitzhardinge
iter_div_u64_rem is used in the x86-64 vdso, which cannot call other kernel code. For this case, provide the always_inlined version, __iter_div_u64_rem. Signed-off-by: Jeremy Fitzhardinge <jeremy.fitzhardinge@citrix.com> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
2008-06-12common implementation of iterative div/modJeremy Fitzhardinge
We have a few instances of the open-coded iterative div/mod loop, used when we don't expcet the dividend to be much bigger than the divisor. Unfortunately modern gcc's have the tendency to strength "reduce" this into a full mod operation, which isn't necessarily any faster, and even if it were, doesn't exist if gcc implements it in libgcc. The workaround is to put a dummy asm statement in the loop to prevent gcc from performing the transformation. This patch creates a single implementation of this loop, and uses it to replace the open-coded versions I know about.

2008-05-01rename div64_64 to div64_u64Roman Zippel
Rename div64_64 to div64_u64 to make it consistent with the other divide functions, so it clearly includes the type of the divide. Move its definition to math64.h as currently no architecture overrides the generic implementation. They can still override it of course, but the duplicated declarations are avoided.

2008-05-01introduce explicit signed/unsigned 64bit divideRoman Zippel
The current do_div doesn't explicitly say that it's unsigned and the signed counterpart is missing, which is e.g. needed when dealing with time values. This introduces 64bit signed/unsigned divide functions which also attempts to cleanup the somewhat awkward calling API, which often requires the use of temporary variables for the dividend. To avoid the need for temporary variables everywhere for the remainder, each divide variant also provides a version which doesn't return the remainder. Each architecture can now provide optimized versions of these function, otherwise generic fallback implementations will be used. As an example I provided an alternative for the current x86 divide, which avoids the asm casts and using an union allows gcc to generate better code. It also avoids the upper divde in a few more cases, where the result is known (i.e. upper quotient is zero).

2007-04-25[S390]: Fix build on 31-bit.David S. Miller
Allow s390 to properly override the generic __div64_32() implementation by: 1) Using obj-y for div64.o in s390's makefile instead of lib-y 2) Adding the weak attribute to the generic implementation. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2007-04-25[LIB]: div64_64 optimizationStephen Hemminger
Minor optimization of div64_64. do_div() already does optimization for the case of 32 by 32 divide, so no need to do it here. Signed-off-by: Stephen Hemminger <shemminger@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
