Err no, that poor decision was entirely mine -;)  I had wrongly
assumed __udivmoddi4 to be always available
and got surprised when it gave undefined reference error on aarch64
and hence brought it up for discussion.
I removed those parts of the patch that generated call to
__udivmoddi4() before posting the patch upstream.
