Subject[PATCH v3] hung_task : check the value of "sysctl_hung_task_timeout_sec"
Date
As sysctl_hung_task_timeout_sec is unsigned long, when this value is
larger then LONG_MAX/HZ, the function schedule_timeout_interruptible in
watchdog will return immediately without sleep and with print :

[ 205.452934] schedule_timeout: wrong timeout value ffffffffffffff83

and then the funtion watchdog will call schedule_timeout_interruptible
again and again. The screen will be filled with
"schedule_timeout: wrong timeout value ffffffffffffff83"

This patch does some check and correction in sysctl, to let the
function schedule_timeout_interruptible allways get the valid parameter.
