SubjectRe: [git pull] timer fix

Hm... .bss you say? :) The bloat-o-meter results would be:

For the original fix with casting hpet_t1_cmp to u32 inside the loop
add/remove: 0/0 grow/shrink: 1/0 up/down: 2/0 (2)
function old new delta
hpet_rtc_interrupt 741 743 +2

For the fix with casting the substitution result to s32
add/remove: 0/0 grow/shrink: 0/1 up/down: 0/-2 (-2)
function old new delta
hpet_rtc_interrupt 741 739 -2

For the proposed by Kirill type change of the hpet_t1_cmp
add/remove: 0/0 grow/shrink: 0/3 up/down: 0/-6 (-6)
function old new delta
hpet_rtc_timer_init 186 185 -1
hpet_rtc_interrupt 741 740 -1
hpet_t1_cmp 8 4 -4

That's the fix:

diff --git a/arch/x86/kernel/hpet.c b/arch/x86/kernel/hpet.c
index 64d5ad0..dfbbb94 100644

This one also works. Should I re-send this patch in a proper way?
