as long as the operations are normal ANSI-C twos complement style (=not some
weird useless saturaton stuff) the code is identical to yours, no matter how
large the input values are
you could say that any overflows always would be canceled by other overflows
you can look in your favorite math book (or wikipedia) about rings and modular
arithmetic ...
