Subject[084/262] time: Change jiffies_to_clock_t() argument type to unsigned long
3.0-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: hank <pyu@redhat.com>

commit cbbc719fccdb8cbd87350a05c0d33167c9b79365 upstream.

The parameter's origin type is long. On an i386 architecture, it can
easily be larger than 0x80000000, causing this function to convert it
to a sign-extended u64 type.
Change the type to unsigned long so we get the correct result.
