Subject: [PATCH 2/3] time: allow gcc to fold constants when using msecs_to_jiffies

The majority of the msecs_to_jiffies() users in the kernel are passing in
constants which would allow gcc to do constant folding by checking with
__builtin_constant_p() in msecs_to_jiffies().

The original msecs_to_jiffies is renamed to __msecs_to_jiffies and aside
from the removal of the check for negative values being moved out, is
unaltered.

Signed-off-by: Nicholas Mc Guire <hofrat@...dl.org>
---

Thanks to Joe Perches <joe@...ches.com> for suggesting this approach and
for his review comments on the first attempts.

Patch was compile and boot tested (x86_64) and a few msecs_to_jiffies() 
locations verified by inspection of the .lst files.

Patch is against 4.0-rc6 (localversion-next is -next-20150402)
