Subject[PATCH v3] ktime: Fix ktime_divns to do signed division
Date
It was noted that the 32bit implementation of ktime_divns()
was doing unsigned division and didn't properly handle
negative values.

And when a ktime helper was changed to utilize
ktime_divns, it caused a regression on some IR blasters.
See the following bugzilla for details:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1200353

This patch fixes the problem in ktime_divns by checking
and preserving the sign bit, and then reapplying it if
appropriate after the division, it also changes the return
type to a s64 to make it more obvious this is expected.

Nicolas also pointed out that negative dividers would
cause infinite loops on 32bit systems, negative dividers
is unlikely for users of this function, but out of caution
this patch adds checks for negative dividers for both
32-bit (BUG_ON) and 64-bit(WARN_ON) versions to make sure
no such use cases creep in.

New in v3:
* Fix casting issue Nicolas pointed out
* Use WARN_ON for 64bit case
