* [PATCH] Make the kernel NTP code hand 64-bit *unsigned* values to do_div() [try #3]

The kernel NTP code shouldn't hand 64-bit *signed* values to do_div().  Make it
instead hand 64-bit unsigned values.  This gets rid of a couple of warnings.

On certain architectures.  It would have bene nice to mention what those
architectures are, and to quote the warnings.  Next time, please ;)

Thomas, do you consider ntp to fall under git-hrt?

OK.  And this is still
git+ssh://master.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tglx/linux-2.6-hrt.git#mm,
yes?

Can we please define the scope of that tree?

Please review

fix-shadowed-variables-in-kernel-posix-cpu-timersc.patch
timers-simplify-lockdep-stuff.patch
hrtimers-simplify-lockdep-stuff.patch
kill-double_spin_lock.patch
ntp-make-the-kernel-ntp-code-hand-64-bit-unsigned-values-to-do_div.patch

from http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/mmotm/broken-out/.  I think they're
all probably git-hrt material.

Can we get that tree into linux-next too please?

Yes

Primary scope is hrtimer, posixtimer, clockevents & Co.

In the last month I fed a lot of timekeeping/ntp stuff via -hrt as
well. If there is no objection, I'm happy to provide the sink for
those.

Will do tomorrow, when I'm more awake.

Will contact Stephen.
