Subject[PATCH next] sysctl: add proc_dointvec_jiffies_minmax to limit the min/max write value
Date
From: Zhiqiang Liu <liuzhiqiang26@huawei.com>

In proc_dointvec_jiffies func, the write value is only checked
whether it is larger than INT_MAX. If the write value is less
than zero, it can also be successfully writen in the data.

However, in some scenarios, users would adopt the data to
set timers or check whether time is expired. Generally, the data
will be cast to an unsigned type variable, then the negative data
becomes a very large unsigned value, which leads to long waits
or other unpredictable problems.

Here, we add a new func, proc_dointvec_jiffies_minmax, to limit the
min/max write value, which is similar to the proc_dointvec_minmax func.
