Andi Kleen could say for sure :-) From my observation, the values are
typically doubles and definitely need to be in the divide case. There
is also code handling them as longs such as |, &, ^:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip.git/tree/tools/perf/util/expr.y#n100
There's an experiment to see if all of the long handling code could be
removed. This change isn't modifying the existing behavior.

Thanks,
Ian
