Great! Can I ask you to try this:

uword c = 900000;
uword y = mul(123456, 654321) / c;

(I believe c-argument in your function is just a misprint)
If it generates only 3 asm-instructions (assuming that mul() is inline) it'd
be great. Still, I would *not* rely on it because there's no strictly
defined syntax.
