Subject[PATCH 021/173] fix jiffy calculations in calibrate_delay_direct to handle overflow
2.6.27.59-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Tim Deegan <Tim.Deegan@citrix.com>

commit 70a062286b9dfcbd24d2e11601aecfead5cf709a upstream.

Fixes a hang when booting as dom0 under Xen, when jiffies can be
quite large by the time the kernel init gets this far.
