Subject[34-longterm 059/247] fix jiffy calculations in calibrate_delay_direct to handle overflow
Date
From: Tim Deegan <Tim.Deegan@citrix.com>

-------------------
This is a commit scheduled for the next v2.6.34 longterm release.
If you see a problem with using this for longterm, please comment.
-------------------
commit 70a062286b9dfcbd24d2e11601aecfead5cf709a upstream.

Fixes a hang when booting as dom0 under Xen, when jiffies can be
quite large by the time the kernel init gets this far.
