Subject[PATCH] [RFC] time: Make sure jiffies_to_msecs() preserves non-zero time periods
Date
For the common cases where 1000 is a multiple of HZ, or HZ is a multiple
of 1000, jiffies_to_msecs() never returns zero when passed a non-zero
time period.

However, if HZ > 1000 and not an integer multiple of 1000 (e.g. 2001),
jiffies_to_msecs() may return zero for small non-zero time periods.
This may break code that relies on receiving back a non-zero value, e.g.
drivers/char/tpm/tpm2-cmd.c:tpm2_do_selftest().

jiffies_to_usecs() does not need such a fix, as <linux/jiffies.h> does
not support values of HZ larger than 12287, thus rejecting any
problematic huge values of HZ.

I noticed this issue due to the following compiler warning with
gcc-4.1.2:

drivers/char/tpm/tpm2-cmd.c: In function ‘tpm2_do_selftest’:
drivers/char/tpm/tpm2-cmd.c:851: warning: ‘rc’ may be used uninitialized in this function

With the fix above, this becomes a false positive.
Nevertheless, it may be a good idea to preinitialize rc anyway, but I
have no idea what's the correct value (else I would have sent a patch
to do so ;-).

Fixes: 87434f58be31a96d ("tpm: Use dynamic delay to wait for TPM 2.0 self test result")
