Subject[PATCH] clocks_calc_mult_shift(): rename minsec argument according to actual usage
The minsec argument to clocks_calc_mult_shift() is misnamed. It is used 
to clamp the magnitude of the mult factor so that a multiplication with
any value in the given range won't overflow a 64 bit result. Let's
rename it to match the actual usage.
