Unfortunately, it's not enough. We need to take care about the following cases
1) h or l negative;
2) h == 0, if l == 0, I dunno what is this. it's basically either 0 or warning;
3) l == 0;
4) h and l > 0.

Now, on top of that (since it's a macro) we have to keep in mind that
h and l can be signed and / or unsigned types.
And macro shall work for all 4 cases (by type signedess).

Since this has been introduced in v5.7 and not only your code is
affected by this I think we need to ping original author either to fix
or revert.

So, I Cc'ed to the author and reviewers, because they probably know
better why that had been done in the first place and breaking existing
code.
