I understand this is annoying, but it seems I'm missing something:

static inline u64 div_u64(u64 dividend, u32 divisor)
u32 remainder;
return div_u64_rem(dividend, divisor, &remainder);

static inline u64 div_u64_rem(u64 dividend, u32 divisor, u32 *remainder)
*remainder = do_div(dividend, divisor);
return dividend;

#define do_div(n, base) __div64_32(&(n), base)

static inline uint32_t __div64_32(uint64_t *n, uint32_t base)
register unsigned int __base asm("r4") = base;
register unsigned long long __n asm("r0") = *n;
register unsigned long long __res asm("r2");
register unsigned int __rem asm(__xh);
asm( __asmeq("%0", __xh)
__asmeq("%1", "r2")
__asmeq("%2", "r0")
__asmeq("%3", "r4")
"bl __do_div64"
: "=r" (__rem), "=r" (__res)
: "r" (__n), "r" (__base)
: "ip", "lr", "cc");
*n = __res;
return __rem;

There is no reference to __builtin_constant_p(), could you elaborate?

Also you mentioned there are plenty of cases, maybe there is a more
straightforward one?

In any case it seems this derails a bit from the original topic of the
thread. Shall we take this offline?
