Subject[PATCH 3.18 084/104] lib/div64.c: off by one in shift
Date
[ Upstream commit cdc94a37493135e355dfc0b0e086d84e3eadb50d ]

fls counts bits starting from 1 to 32 (returns 0 for zero argument). If
we add 1 we shift right one bit more and loose precision from divisor,
what cause function incorect results with some numbers.

Corrected code was tested in user-space, see bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202391
