Subject: [PATCH] sysctl: add proper unsigned int support

Commit e7d316a02f6838 ("sysctl: handle error writing UINT_MAX to u32 fields")
added proc_douintvec() to start help adding support for unsigned int,
this however was only half the work needed, all these issues are present
with the current implementation:

  o Printing the values shows a negative value, this happens
    since do_proc_dointvec() and this uses proc_put_long()
  o We can easily wrap around the int values: UINT_MAX is
    4294967295, if we echo in 4294967295 + 1 we end up with 0,
    using 4294967295 + 2 we end up with 1.
 o We echo negative values in and they are accepted

Fix all these issues by adding our own do_proc_douintvec().

I split this off as its own atomic fix from a larger RFC series [0].
I've only provided the fix here, and split off further functionality
into a separate patch for the future. Although this is a fix I don't think
its super critical, and specially due to its size do not think it can
be stable material.

I do have proc_douintvec_minmax() but since we have no users for it
it can wait until I add something that makes use of it. If someone
needs it now though please let me know.

Likewise adding proc_douintvec_minmax_sysadmin() is very trivial but I have no
immediate users for it so it can wait even longer.
