parentfib: use __fls() on non null argument (diff)
time: jiffies_delta_to_clock_t() helper to the rescue
Various /proc/net files sometimes report crazy timer values, expressed in clock_t units. This happens when an expired timer delta (expires - jiffies) is passed to jiffies_to_clock_t(). This function has an overflow in : return div_u64((u64)x * TICK_NSEC, NSEC_PER_SEC / USER_HZ); commit cbbc719fccdb8cb (time: Change jiffies_to_clock_t() argument type to unsigned long) only got around the problem. As we cant output negative values in /proc/net/tcp without breaking various tools, I suggest adding a jiffies_delta_to_clock_t() wrapper that caps the negative delta to a 0 value.
