Subject[PATCH] net/core/dev.c jiffies cleanup
Linus, Alan,
here is the first of the jiffies cleanups, this one of the files that
Tim Schmielau flagged as "suspicious" users of jiffies. Yes, I'm
selfish, I'll only be sending patches for now for drivers/subsystems
that I actually use. The jiffies audit should probably become an
item on the kernel janitor list of things to do (Arnaldo CC'd).

Some places in the network code are hairy users of jiffies values,
and it is not always clear that they are being used safely, but I
can only do my best.

Where possible, I've also moved end-time calculations outside the
loop and removed some confusing uses of "now".

Cheers, Andreas
