Subject[PATCH] lib/test_kmod: Fix an integer overflow test
The main problem is that the parentheses are in the wrong place and the
unlikely() call returns either 0 or 1 so it's never less than zero. The
other problem is that signed integer overflows like "INT_MAX + 1" are
undefined behavior.

Fixes: d9c6a72d6fa2 ("kmod: add test driver to stress test the module loader")
Signed-off-by: Dan Carpenter <dan.carpenter@oracle.com>
