simply do not match.

That's a very poor reason to write utter nonsense :-)

30% sounds like a lot, esp. for this range.

If you use a regular rounding, the error is _much_ smaller:

$ for ((x=5;x<21;x++)) ; do let d=(1024+x/2)/x; let s=(x-1)*d; let e=1024-s; let p=100*(d-e)/d; echo $x $d $s $e $p%; done
5 205 820 204 0%
6 171 855 169 1%
7 146 876 148 -1%
8 128 896 128 0%
9 114 912 112 1%
10 102 918 106 -3%
11 93 930 94 -1%
12 85 935 89 -4%
13 79 948 76 3%
14 73 949 75 -2%
15 68 952 72 -5%
16 64 960 64 0%
17 60 960 64 -6%
18 57 969 55 3%
19 54 972 52 3%
20 51 969 55 -7%

Funnily enough, we have a helper for that too: DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST().

Now, if we go further, the error will obviously increase because we run
out of precision, but even there, regular rounding will be better than
either floor or ceil.
