Subject[34-longterm 208/247] hwmon: (sht15) Fix integer overflow in humidity calculation
Date
From: Vivien Didelot <vivien.didelot@savoirfairelinux.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 ccd32e735de7a941906e093f8dca924bb05c5794 upstream.

An integer overflow occurs in the calculation of RHlinear when the
relative humidity is greater than around 30%. The consequence is a subtle
(but noticeable) error in the resulting humidity measurement.
