So these patches are all rather straight forward, however.. the above is
pretty horrific on a 32bit box, and we do quite a few of them per
wakeup. Is this really worth the performance penalty on 32bit CPUs?

Do you really still care about 32bit CPUs, or is this mostly an artifact
of wanting to unconditionally increase the precision?
