The multiply instruction will be the same in either case. But the
undefined behavior means that it's for example valid for the compiler to
assume that x < 42954 always. And even if the compiler does nothing like
that and generates straightforward code, it will matter for the
following _division_ whether results with the highest bit set are
interpreted as signed or unsigned.
(signed)(-1)/46 = 0
(unsigned)(-1)/46 = 93368854
