Question about Linus' QOTW
Posted Aug 25, 2011 16:30 UTC (Thu) by hmh (subscriber, #3838)
Linus says this later (which I also consider QotW material):
Big 64-bit divides are bad bad bad. They are so horrendously bad on 32-bit that we don't even support them.
Which is in no way an overstatement of the badness, so I think you got it just right. It is ungodly expensive, indeed.
