Oops, I missed an include which is required. The updated patch is attached.

A 64 bit quantity divided by a 32 bit quantity seems to be a standard
interface in the kernel and is used fairly widely, so I suspect that
the embedded folks have already done the work.

I don't know which should be used, s64 or int64_t. I chose int64_t
because then it would (more or less) match the interface of do_div().

Yes, it also makes the kernel definition for sys_poll() match the user level
definition for poll(2) found in <poll.h>.

Thanx...

ps
