Subject: [PATCH 4.9 039/130] fuse: fix time_to_jiffies nsec sanity check

4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: David Sheets <david.sheets@...ker.com>

commit 210675270caa33253e4c33f3c5e657e7d6060812 upstream.

Commit bcb6f6d2b9c2 ("fuse: use timespec64") introduced clamped nsec values
in time_to_jiffies but used the max of nsec and NSEC_PER_SEC - 1 instead of
the min. Because of this, dentries would stay in the cache longer than
requested and go stale in scenarios that relied on their timely eviction.
