endless loop in remainder() on mips


hi,
  for this testcase,remaider() will enter an endless loop:
rounding is TONEAREST
x=(7fefffff,ffffffff),y=(00000000,00000001)

attached is a little program to test it(gcc t-remainder.c -lm)
most important part is listed here:

while (l>0) {
    ...
printf("u=(%08lx,%08lx),d=(%08lx,%08lx),w=(%08lx,%08lx)\n",u.i[1],u.i[0],tmp2.i[1],tmp2.i[0],w.i[1],w.i[0]); 
    tmp1.x = d*w.x;
	tmp2.x = u.x - tmp1.x; 
	u.x=(u.x-d*w.x)/*-d*ww.x*/;
printf("d*w=(%08lx,%08lx),u.x-d*w=(%08lx,%08lx),u=(%08lx,%08lx)\n",tmp1.i[1],tmp1.i[0],tmp2.i[1],tmp2.i[0],u.i[1],u.i[0]); 
	l=(u.i[HIGH_HALF]&0x7ff00000)-nn;
}
It is weird enough for me that u doesn't equal to tmp2,that is where x86 and mips differ. 

the output from my P4:
rounding is TONEAREST
x=(7fefffff,ffffffff),y=(00000000,00000001)
x=(7fefffff,ffffffff),y=(04d00000,00000000)
1/y=7b100000,00000000

u=(7fefffff,ffffffff),d=(41400000,00000000),w=(7ea00000,00000000)
d*w=(7ff00000,00000000),u.x-d*w=(fff00000,00000000),u=(fca00000,00000000) <--notice this
u=(fca00000,00000000),d=(c1300000,00000000),w=(7b600000,00000000)
d*w=(fca00000,00000000),u.x-d*w=(00000000,00000000),u=(00000000,00000000)
x=(00000000,00000000),y=(04d00000,00000000)

Thank you.
