Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.14 01/60] backlight: pwm_bl: Fix overflow
 condition

From: Derek Basehore <dbasehore@...omium.org>

[ Upstream commit 5d0c49acebc9488e37db95f1d4a55644e545ffe7 ]

This fixes an overflow condition that can happen with high max
brightness and period values in compute_duty_cycle. This fixes it by
using a 64 bit variable for computing the duty cycle.
