Subject[PATCH] libfs: fix simple_attr_write on 32bit machine
Date
Assume that /sys/kernel/debug/dummy64 is debugfs file created by
debugfs_create_x64().

# cd /sys/kernel/debug
# echo 0x1234567812345678 > dummy64
# cat dummy64
0x0000000012345678

# echo 0x80000000 > dummy64
# cat dummy64
0xffffffff80000000

The value more than INT_MAX cannot be written to the debugfs file
created by debugfs_create_u64 or debugfs_create_x64 on 32bit machine.
Because simple_attr_write() uses simple_strtol() for the conversion.

To fix this, use simple_strtoll() instead.
