Yeah, me too.  But if count == prec, the code always:
  /* Zero / sign extend all bits that are beyond the precision.  */
  if (count >= prec)
      *hv = signmask;
      *lv = signmask;
which is definitely not what we want.  We want TYPE_PRECISION bits
of the result zero resp. sign extended into the whole double_int precision,
which for TYPE_PRECISION == HOST_BITS_PER_WIDE_INT is exactly the:
  else if ((prec - count) >= HOST_BITS_PER_WIDE_INT)
      *hv &= ~((HOST_WIDE_INT) (-1) << (prec - count - HOST_BITS_PER_WIDE_INT));
      *hv |= signmask << (prec - count - HOST_BITS_PER_WIDE_INT);
case, and for smaller TYPE_PRECISION it is the last case:
      *hv = signmask;
      *lv &= ~((unsigned HOST_WIDE_INT) (-1) << (prec - count));
      *lv |= signmask << (prec - count);

false was what rth used in his original code.  Looking at what is the
difference, it seems unsigned_p only matters for the computation of
overflow, and, MULT_HIGHPART_EXPR should never overflow, thus perhaps
we should either have a dummy bool overflow_dummy; there and use it
instead of &overflow, or just set overflow = false; afterwards.
