Subject[Patch] Re: Nasty suprise with uptime
The appended patch enables 32 bit linux boxes to display more than
497.1 days of uptime. No user land application changes are needed.

Credit is due to George Anzinger and the High-res-timers project
at https://sourceforge.net/projects/high-res-timers/, where I ripped
out the 64 bit jiffies patch. However, I do claim ownership on
all misdesign and bugs since this is my first kernel patch.

My Intel box just now displays a (faked, of course) uptime of 497 days,
2:38 hours, so the 32 jiffies value has wrapped without problems about 10
minutes ago.

Next step would be to decide what to do with the start_time field of
struct task_struct, which is still 32 bit, so ps on my box believes some
processes to have started 497 days ago. Probably there are tons of other
uses for the upper 32 bit of jiffies as well.
