On x86 the code generated looks exactly the same:

https://godbolt.org/z/PjmA7k

While on on arm64 it seems the difference boils down to:
- one single "mul" instruction
vs
- two instructions: "sub" _plus_ one "multiply subtract"

https://godbolt.org/z/0shU0S

So, if I din't get something wrong... perhaps the original version is
even better, isn't it?


Test code:

---8<---
#define UCLAMP_BUCKET_DELTA 52

static inline unsigned int uclamp_bucket_id(unsigned int clamp_value)
{
return clamp_value / UCLAMP_BUCKET_DELTA;
}

static inline unsigned int uclamp_bucket_value1(unsigned int clamp_value)
{
return UCLAMP_BUCKET_DELTA * uclamp_bucket_id(clamp_value);
}

static inline unsigned int uclamp_bucket_value2(unsigned int clamp_value)
{
return clamp_value - (clamp_value % UCLAMP_BUCKET_DELTA);
}

int test1(int argc, char *argv[]) {
return uclamp_bucket_value1(argc);
}

int test2(int argc, char *argv[]) {
return uclamp_bucket_value2(argc);
}

int test3(int argc, char *argv[]) {
return uclamp_bucket_value1(argc) - uclamp_bucket_value2(argc);
}
---8<---

which gives on arm64:

---8<---
test1:
mov w1, 60495
movk w1, 0x4ec4, lsl 16
umull x0, w0, w1
lsr x0, x0, 36
mov w1, 52
mul w0, w0, w1
ret
test2:
mov w1, 60495
movk w1, 0x4ec4, lsl 16
umull x1, w0, w1
lsr x1, x1, 36
mov w2, 52
msub w1, w1, w2, w0
sub w0, w0, w1
ret
test3:
mov w0, 0
ret
---8<---
