I change the definition of "smallest" to be the most trailing zeros and only compute the full residual when the low word is all zero (rare but still happens several times per ghz-day).

I like you're idea otherwise. It can be reworked to return a lower residual to look for.
The downside is depending on which kernel is used different intermediate values are available this would require the server to make guesses about what kernel mfaktc will use.
