Subject[patch 56/59] NETFILTER: xt_connbytes: fix division by zero
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------

From: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net>

When the packet counter of a connection is zero a division by zero
occurs in div64_64(). Fix that by using zero as average value, which
is correct as long as the packet counter didn't overflow, at which
point we have lost anyway.

Additionally we're probably going to go back to 64 bit counters
in 2.6.21.

Based on patch from Jonas Berlin <xkr47@outerspace.dyndns.org>,
with suggestions from KOVACS Krisztian <hidden@balabit.hu>.
