Perfectly ok, as in "ok to install?"

The patch survived bootstrap and testsuite on solaris2 last night.
Apparently the extra "const"s allow slightly better optimization
because two of the functions reduced in size.  (_negdi2.o by 16 bytes
and _udivmoddi4.o by 8 bytes.)

Regarding the use of w.s.low as Gaby mentioned, the original code did
the same thing, however it did so it two separate statements, with
w.s.low first.  The new code uses it in one initialization statement,
however .low is still initialized first so I believe it should be ok.
(It's not evaluated in random order like function arguments, is it?)
If that's a problem, or even a perceived one, I can substitute the
actual value instead of using .low in that case.  (And I'll retest.)

I'd also like to hear from Joern whether it solves the "uninitialized"
