Does it have to be done as a macro? A lot of these things are
implemented as nice inline C functions.

Also, most of these functions and macros return a value whereas
DIV64_U64_ROUND_UP() does not. Desirable?

(And we're quite pathetic about documenting what those return values
_are_, which gets frustrating for the poor schmucks who sit here
reviewing code all day).
