Subject: [PATCH] clocksource: imx-tpm: correct -ETIME return condition check
Date: Thu, 19 Apr 2018 14:04:43 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The additional brakets added to tpm_set_next_event's return
value computation causes (int) forced type conversion NOT
taking effect, and the incorrect value return will cause
various system timer issue, like RCU stall etc..

This patch removes the additional brakets to make sure
tpm_set_next_event always returns correct value.
