What is wrong with:
	({ u32 _tmp = (divisor); div_u64((dividend) + (u64)0 + _tmp / 2, _tmp); })
Or:
	({ u32 _tmp = (divisor); div_u64((dividend) + (u64)(_tmp / 2), _tmp); })
Both will ensure a 32bit 'dividend' is promoted to 64 bits before the '+'.
Both will fail if 'dividend' isn't an integer type.
On 32bit systems the compiler will also know when the high bits van be ignored.
