Correct.  I later determined that the effect was caused by the
reservation problem that you diagnosed.  Indeed, your analysis

suggests the reason for this failure.

I have done this in my current patch.

I have also done this in my current patch.  You're right -- modeling
the late reservation is silly.  Especially since the divide instruction
has a data-dependent latency.

Thanks for looking at this.
