Subject[PATCH] ntp: Fix integer overflow when setting time
Date
On 64bit machines, the difference between 'time_reftime' and current time
is 8 bits, this variable is used as the divisor in div_s64() to calculate
the frequency, but div_s64() assumes the divisor is 32bits.

This means that we are able to trigger a division by zero if the difference
has 0's in it's lower bytes. This way it would skip the sanity checks before
the div_64s() but when it gets to that div it would get truncated and
become 0.

This causes the following error:
